Newt Cornwell – Founder
Newt Cornwell founded what would become Cornwell Pharmacy in 1969.
Born in Hobart, Oklahoma, he spent many of his summers with family in Guthrie while growing up. His studies led him to biology and coaching, but becoming a pharmacist became his passion in 1964 when he graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford Oklahoma.
Mr. Cornwell got married three days after graduation because his mother told him that he had to be married before he moved to Guthrie! He made Guthrie his permanent home and started working as a pharmacist two days after marriage. He’s the proud father of two children who were raised in Guthrie.
A serial entrepreneur, Newt Cornwell said, “I was raised that way. My father said if you’re going to earn money and work hard, why not do it for yourself?”
Mr. Cornwell is an active and enthusiastic community leader. He has been, or is currently working with the Guthrie Kiwanis Club, the Guthrie Jaycees, Guthrie Chamber of Commerce, the Oklahoma Frontier Drugstore Museum and is active at the First United Presbyterian Church in Guthrie.
Newt Cornwell has a distinguished career as a pharmacist, serving the people of Guthrie and building a successful local business. He has become a leader of the Guthrie community and works hard to give back to the town he loves.
He describes his life and the life of his family as blessed and he attributes that to the people of Guthrie.
