About the Author:

John Harvey Kellogg was born February 26, 1852 into a fledgling Seventh-day Adventist family in Tyrone, Michigan. Four years later the Kelloggs moved to Battle Creek--destined to become the Breakfast Food Capital of the World as the result of John Harvey's inventive mind. Taught by his brothers to read before starting school, he also learned to play the organ, piano and violin. As an apprentice in the church's Review and Herald Publishing House, John Harvey read a steady stream of health reform articles and books coming off the press. Kellogg began his early career as teacher but soon was drawn to medicine, graduating from New York's Bellevue Hospital Medical School, and ultimately became the Midwest's pre-eminent health educator. He coined the term "sanitarium" to distinguish the teaching role of his hospital from the average medical institution, expanding it to encompass over 400 acres and employing a staff of 1000 to care for 700 patients. He promoted hydrotherapy, massage, a vegetarian diet, and eliminated coffee, tea, tobacco, and alcohol. He created "Granola," corn flakes, peanut butter, almond milk, gluten meat substitutes, Cereal Coffee and 70 other food inventions. He devised a series of surgical instruments including a heated operating table, the first dynamometer, pneumograph, menthol inhaler, the electric blanket, the electric light bath cabinet, and a complete line of mechanical physical fitness exercising equipment. He established a School of Nursing, a Normal School of Physical Education and Economics, the Battle Creek College, The American Medical Missionary College, the Race Betterment Foundation, the Sanitarium Equipment Company and, his most famous--the Battle Creek Food Company. His 91-year long life was devoted to promoting what he called "biologic living."
