Robert Wadlow was born in Alton, Illinois on February 22, 1918, and seemed just like any other baby. However, by the age of one, he was over 3 feet tall, and by his eighth birthday – nearly twice that!
At 13, Robert was the tallest Boy Scout in the world – at a towering 7 feet, 4 inches.
In 1936, he joined a traveling circus and drew massive crowds.
2 years later, he became the spokesman for a shoe company and as a perk, received free shoes (size 37AA). (In comparison … Shaquille O’Neal’s shoe size is but a mere 23)
Due to his extreme height, Robert suffered with a lack of feeling in his legs.
Refusing to use a wheelchair, he chose to wear special braces to help him walk.
Tragically, at the age of 22, one of the braces caused a blister which Robert didn’t notice (due to the lack of feeling in his legs).
This blister eventually led to an infection and ultimately, to the premature death of the gentle, ‘Alton Giant’.
Robert’s last recorded measurement (18 days prior to his passing) was 8 feet, 11.1 inches!
