Description

Photograph of I.N. Irwin (d. 9/18/1931), a prominent Decatur druggist for 50 years. Partner in the Irwin Drug Co. with his brother, S.M. Irwin, and bought his brother's interest in 1892. In 1929, he sold a share of the business to Delos Cozad, and changed the name of the business to Irwin-Cozad Drug Store. This store was located at 101 E. Prairie Ave. The store took voluntary bankruptcy in July 1937. Irwin was the first in Decatur to sell Coca-Cola and ice cream soda. In 1911, he and his brother bought Bushway Flavoring Extract Co. at 949 N. Water St., and S.M. Irwin managed it. The photo was taken by Vandeventer, and used in the Decatur Herald or Daily Review in 1917.
