W.M. 'Doc' Hightower Dies Late Tuesday
Heart Disease is Cause of Death
The Hugo Daily News June 28, 1939 - transcribed by Ron Henson
W.M. "Doc" Hightower, of Fort Towson, one of the county's most colorful
figures for the past quarter of a century, died in the Hugo Hospital a few
hours after being brought here late Tuesday. Cause of death was said to
be heart disease.
Mr. Hightower was known far and wide as the manufacturer of
Herbotone herb medicine. Until his advanced age prevented his making
long trips, he used to tour the country with a medicine show troup,
selling his Herbotone remedy.
He is survived by a son, jerry Hightower of Tulsa and three daughters,
whose names could not be learned today. Two of them reside in
California and the other in Houston, Texas.
Funeral arrangements are pending the arrival of his son from Tulsa this
afternoon. Coffey-Baker funeral directors are in charge.
Dr. Hightower came to Fort Towson in 1910
