Random photos of the Howard Butt family

I found this packet of family pictures of the Howard Butt Sr. in my files recently.  Howard Butt was the youngest son of Charles and Florence Butt.  Florence started a grocery store; Howard worked in the store and, after many trials, found success and renamed the grocery store the H. E. Butt Grocery Company, which we all know as H-E-B.

    These are great! 3rd graders in San Antonio are studying him as well as other entrepreneurs. Can we use some of these for their projects/reports?

    1. Certainly. Everything on this site is available for free to everyone. I hope the 3rd graders enjoy the site! Joe

  2. Brings back many memories. Ever since I traded in San Antonio, Tx for El Paso, Tx in 2006 I have immensely missed H-E-B Stores. I grew up in them.

  3. I work for mr. Howard Senior and my dad at the HEB on Bandera Road number 16. Howard Senior was a great man he greeted all his employees as if they were family

  4. I work for Howard Senior when I was 16 at the HEB on Bandera Road number 16. He greeted all his employees as if they were family.
