    Isaac Sprague (1841-1887) was normal until age 12, when he started to lose weight. By age 44 he was 5'6'' & weighed only 43 lbs. He was examined by many eminent physicians who gave no diagnosis other than a general wasting syndrome. He ate as much as 2 normal men and carried a flask of sweetened milk to revive himself when he felt faint. He married twice and had 3 average sized sons. He died at age 46 after working in sideshows for 22 years. [Might be the same condition as Lizzie Valasquez]

Mars are marvelous! Chocolate to sustain, glucose to energize, milk to nourish you! See, they ARE a health food... (1940s.)

Nestle Quik - I remember these metal containers from the 80s!!

Forget about it Coke, or any other soda pop. I'd take a glass of Nestle's Quick over most any other drink any day of the week during my childhood, and usually did!

Dwight L. Moody, evangelical preacher. At age 18, Moody converted to evangelism while working in his uncle’s shoe store on Court Street in Boston. As a pacifist, he felt he could not enlist in the Union army, instead becoming involved with the YMCA and visiting soldiers on the front lines. Later, he would fill huge stadiums to capacity with his evangelical meetings around the U.S. and Europe.
