Edwin “Ed” McDonald is a kind, warm hearted, wonderful man. He was born November 5, 1919, on a farm near Concordia, Kansas. At the age of five, Ed began writing poems. Although he has written several, he could not name a favorite; but did state that he loves them all!

Ed attended Capital College of Pharmacy and graduated with his Pharmacist degree in 1941. He then married a beautiful young lady, Esther Mary, in 1942 and they started a family and raised two very talented daughters. He proudly served as a Pharmacist with the Navy for 4 years, before relocating to Pueblo.

In Pueblo, Ed continued his career as a Pharmacist and explored other areas such as doing pharmacy retail and then later switched to pharmacy whole sales. Ed currently has an active pharmacy license and enjoys being educated on medications to keep his mind active. Along with poetry, Ed started a collection of coins and has picked up the hobby of painting which he finds peaceful. Primrose is currently displaying his poems and paintings on our Primrose Artists wall, located on the second floor by the wellness center. Feel free to drop by and have a look!
