Norvin A. Corbett

NORVIN A. CORBETT, junior member of the drug firm of W. W. Corbett & Son, of New Bethlehem, was born May 15, 1880, at Oakland, Armstrong county, and passed his early life there and at South Bethlehem, where the family settled in the year 1884. He obtained his preliminary education in the local public schools, attending high school at New Bethlehem where he graduated in 1897, and took his course in pharmacy at the Medico-Chirurgical College, Philadelphia, from which institution he was graduated in 1900. During the next four years he was employed as clerk in drug stores in that city, in 1904 returning home to enter his father's drug store, at New Bethlehem, in the same capacity. Two years later, in 1906, he was admitted as a partner in the business, which has since been conducted under the firm name of W.W. Corbett & Son. He devotes all his time to its development and management. The store is the most completely equipped and stocked in New Bethlehem or vicinity, and its up-to-date management is a matter of pride with the owners. Mr. Corbett is one of the most popular young business men in the borough, his ability and sterling character combining to win him the confidence and respect of all who have dealings with him. He is a member of the Baptist Church, and in political faith is a Republican. His home is in South Bethlehem.

On April 9, 1904, Mr. Corbett married Anna E. Leidy, daughter of John A. and Philena Leidy, of Colon, Mich., and they are the parents of one daughter, Alice Blanche.
