Such a man is Dr. Allen Marcellus Bowles, a druggist of Richmond. He was born and reared in Richmond. The date of his birth was May 3, 1890. His parents, Edmund and Louisa Bowles, His maternal grandfather was Benjamin Harris. Dr. Bowles was married on Oct 14, 1907, to Miss Helen F. Carter of Warrenton, NC. She is a daughter of Hen. Hawkins Carter, who formerly represented his county in the legislature. Dr. and Mrs. Bowles have two children, Eloise P. and Garnett D. Bowles. These are being given the best educational advantages. As a boy young Bowles attended the public schools of Richmond, after which he did his adademic and preparatory work at VA. Union University. He passed from there to the Leonard School of Pharmacy, from which he was graduated with the Ph. G. degree in 1907. Dr. Bowles found it necessary to make his own way in school, which he did by means of hotel work. During his summer vacations he went North to work. He gives his mother, who is still living (1920), the credit for being the chief inspiration of his boyhood days. After completing his course in 1907, he returned to Richmond and was employed as a pharmacist for three years. At the end of that time he and Dr. Shackleford formed a partnership and launched a drug business under the firm name of Bowles and Shackleford. They have one stone on Church Hill and another on N. First Street. The business is well established an enjoys a good patronage. In politics Dr. Bowles is a Republican and takes some part in the affairs of his party as ever intelligent citizen should. He is a member of the Baptist Church. Among the secret orders, he belongs to the Elks and the Odd Fellows. He is a member of the Independent Club and is identifed with the Richmond, Old Dominion and National Medical Organizations. He was for two years Secy. of the Pharmaceutical Section of the National Association and has been a regular attendant at the National Conventions. Dr. Bowles believes that the future progress of the race depends on co-operation.
