Willie Osborn, Founder
William E Osborn was born in Commerce, OK in 1934 to Jesse and Nola Osborn. His father was a lead and zinc miner and his mother a school and music teacher. His father died when he was 10 years old leaving Mrs. Osborn, William and his sister, Kathryn. He attended schools in Picher, Commerce and Tahlequah, before coming to Miami in the 7th grade. He played the saxophone for 6 years in the MHS band and graduated in 1952. Willie’s first job in downtown Miami at age 11 was setting pens at a bowling alley and then shining shoes in 1948. He was hired by John Wiley as a soda jerk at Wiley Drug in 1950. In addition, he delivered prescriptions on a bicycle, mopped and swept, and eventually was allowed to help in the pharmacy. He attended the University of Kansas City School of Pharmacy working his way through school with jobs in pharmacies and drugstores in the Kansas City area and each summer in Miami at Wiley’s. After graduating “cum laude” in 1956 he worked for Haslett Drug in Vinita and Jameson Drugs in Joplin before John Wiley brought him home to Miami in 1958. He bought his first interest in the store in 1968 and became owner in 1971 when he established Osborn Drugs, Inc. Osborn Drugs under his leadership has been an integral part of Miami’s history since that time supporting schools, civic clubs, downtown revitalization and industrial development.
