Description

The elusive Corn Flakes creator

Physician and promoter of health foods (1852-1943) best known for his invention of Corn Flakes. Rare vintage matte-finish 8 x 10 half-length portrait of Kellogg, signed in fountain pen, "J. H. Kellogg." In very good condition, with light overall silvering, scattered surface scuffing, and a small stain near the right edge. Kellogg is scarce across all formats, but especially so in signed photographs—only the second we have offered, and certainly the largest.
