Series: Genius at Work! Great Inventor Biographies

By Edwin Brit Wyckoff

Will Keith Kellogg was working as a salesman and accountant for his brother's health food company when one day a mistake produced a different-tasting cereal flake.

His advertising methods made the cereal world-famous and made his name synonymous with breakfast.
