History’s Tallest Man – Robert Wadlow 8′ 11″

The video says he’s from Chicago but my understanding is that he’s from Alton Illinois, just across the river from St. Louis. 

Tallest Man in History – Robert Wadlow 8ft11″.  Born in 1918, Robert is still to this day known as the tallest person in medical history.  Video from 1936.
