Genesis 6:4

"There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." - King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)

Robert Pershing Wadlow Gentle Giant
and the World's Tallest Man

Robert Pershing Wadlow was the first born to Harold F. and Addie Wadlow in Alton, Illinois on Feb. 22, 1918. Alton, Illinois is located twenty five miles north of St Louis on the Mississippi River, located near the confluence of the Mississippi, Illinois, and Missouri Rivers. Robert was a normal sized baby at eight pounds and six ounces but he quickly began to grow due to an over active pituitary gland. At six months, he weighed 30 pounds. A year later, he weighed 62 pounds. When he was eight years old, Robert had grown to 6' and weighed 169 pounds.

The Wadlow family later grew with the addition of two sisters, Helen and Betty, and two brothers, Eugene and Harold Jr.. Robert's siblings fortunately did not have the same growth problems he did. Robert grew up in a normal family during the tough times of the great depression with parents who loved their children.

Robert Wadlow, Alton, Illinois, giant, was 7 feet 4 inches tall and weighed 290 pounds at the age of 13. He is shown here with his father, Harold Wadlow, and his brother, Eugene, aged 9.

At age 18, Robert wore size 37 shoes, which cost $100 a pair, the equivalent of about $1,500 today. Two years later his shoes were provided free by the International Shoe Company. In 1938, Robert undertook a promotional tour as a goodwill ambassador for the International Shoe Company, promoting Peters Shoes. Harold quit his job as worker at an oil company to devote himself to Robert by being his traveling companion and driver. Robert and his father visited 800 towns and 41 states. Robert traveled in a car that had been modified by his father to accommodate him so that he could travel in relative comfort. His father removed the front passenger seat so Robert could sit at the back and stretch his long legs.

 Ukrainian Leonid Stadnyk

Leonid Stepanovych Stadnyk (Ukrainian: Леонід Степанович Стадник; born in Zhytomyr Oblast, Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, USSR 5 August 1970 – died in Podolyantsi, Chudniv Raion, Zhytomyr Oblast, Ukraine on 24 August 2014), was a Ukrainian man who allegedly stood at 8 feet 5 inches or 2.57 meters tall.

Guinness World Record

Leonid Stadnyk was formerly listed as the world's tallest living man according to Guinness World Records.

On August 8, 2007, Guinness book's spokeswoman Amarilis Espinoza stated that in the 2008 edition of the record book, Mr. Stadnyk appeared to be taller than Bao Xishun, a native of Inner Mongolia in China who stands 7 ft 8.9 in (2.360 m). Although he held the title for a few months, Stadnyk refused to be measured and was consequently denied the GWR recognition. Others have questioned the legitimacy of his record, noting that Stadnyk has never been officially measured by Guinness World Records, only by the "Ukrainian Book of Records" that says that he measures 2.57 m (8 ft 5.2 in), and that the doctor originally credited by Guinness with confirming Stadnyk's height had denied ever measuring him.

On August 20, 2008, editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records, Craig Glenday, announced that the title of world's tallest living man had been returned to China's Bao Xishun after Stadnyk refused to be measured under the Guinness standard guidelines requiring several measurements throughout the course of 24 hours under the watchful eye of a Guinness Book representative. Guinness then averages the height readings to come up with a final official measured height.


Stadnyk died at the age of 44 on August 24, 2014 from a brain hemorrhage.
