Physician and promoter of health foods (1852-1943) best known for his invention of Corn Flakes. TLS signed “J. H. Kellogg,” two pages, 8.5 x 11, Miami Battle Creek Sanitarium letterhead, December 23, 1940. Letter to Dr. James T. Case, in part: "I had another nice letter from Dr. Kendall today. He is certainly a very charming man, with a mind of very fine quality. I wonder if he really does smoke. I cannot imagine that such a man as he would want to smoke. I did not note the slightest taint of tobacco during his two days' visit to me, and we sat near together for hours in my home. By the way, a thought of which comes to me every now and then, and has been coming for several months, is whether Dr. Miller would be a good man to have associated with the Sanitarium in the new organization. Is he a man of fine quality, sound integrity, good habits?…Kendall, I believe, would be glad to join us in some way that would lend his influence…I doubt if our philosophical ideas are very far apart." In very good to fine condition, with scattered light creasing and a few short edge tears.
