This bottle was in a large collection I bought but I can’t figure out where Jas A WALKUP was based out of. I’m trying to determine what town he was a pharmacist in.

Probably somewhere in Texas. He died in 1971 in San Antonio https://archive.org/stream/sewaneenews197137univ/sewaneenews197137univ_djvu.txt

"James A. Walkup, M'OO, a graduate
in pharmacy, died February 4 in
San Antonio, Texas, at the age of
ninety-four. The San Antonio
Express says that when he retired
at age eighty-nine he was the oldest
practicing pharmacist in the United
States, and received a congratulatory
letter from President Johnson.
Mr. Walkup told a reporter that
the only time he missed from work
in seventy years was for fishing and
vacations. "

He's mentioned as working for the Meadowbrook Drug Company in Fort Worth in an alumni newsletter from 1951. I haven't been able to find anything from him before that though, so not sure where he would have been when this bottle was used.

Bottle is indeed from Fort Worth, where his pharmacy was located for many years.
