Richard N. Kelly is conducting a drug store on Hamilton street and stands among the foremost business men of the city. He was born in Almonte, Ontario, on the 11th of February, 1876, a son of John and Eliza- beth (Willoughby) Kelly, the former a native of Farmersville, Ontario, and the latter of near Brockville. For a number of years the father was in the hotel business at Almonte. To Mr. and Mrs. Kelly three children were born: Dr. J. K., engaged in the practice of medicine in Almonte, Ontario; Richard N., of this review; William, who is secretary of the Wylie Milling Company of Almonte. The religious faith of Mr. and Mrs. Kelly was that of the Anglican church and she was very active in church work. Throughout his life Mr. Kelly gave his political allegiance to the Liberal party, having firm belief in the principles of that party as factors in good government. In the acquirement of his education Richard N. Kelly attended the public schools of Almonte and in due time was graduated from high school. He then became an apprentice to the drug trade, entering the store of H. F. McCarthy of Ottawa. For some time he worked in a drug store in the east and in March, 1903, located in Winnipeg, where for three months he was associated with W. J. Mitchell. On the 26th of September, 1903, he came to Regina and engaged in the drug business with a Mr. Mclvor, for ten months, at the termination of which time Mr. Kelly determined to operate a store independently. He has a well equipped, up-to-date store at No.1784 Hamilton street and has an extensive trade. His origi- nal store was located on Railroad street. There is no phase of the phar- macal business with which Mr. Kelly is not thoroughly familiar and he well merits the success he has achieved. He is a man of genial and pleas- ing personality and has countless friends in this city. In 1907 Mr. Kelly was married to Miss Mary C. Nicol, a native of Ottawa, where she received her education. They have one child: John King, who is fifteen years of age. Mrs. Kelly is a woman of culture and refinement and she maintains an active interest in the club and social circles of this city. The religious faith of the Kelly family is that of the Anglican church. Fraternally he is identified with the Masons and has attained both the York and Scottish Rites and is a Noble of the Mystic Shrine. He is an active member of the local Kiwanis Club and socially is identified with the Assiniboia Club and the Wascana Country Club. His hobbies are golf and motoring. The greater part of Mr. Kelly's time and attention is devoted to his business and he is a director of the United Drug Company. He is a self-made man in the truest sense of the word and is accorded the confidence and esteem of all who know him. Bibliography follows:
