Feb. 26, 1852: Happy Birthday to the Inventor of Corn Flakes!
On this day in 1852, John H. Kellogg, the inventor of corn flakes, was born in Battle Creek, Michigan. 
As a physician in a Seventh Day Adventist sanitarium, John Kellogg worked with his brother Will Keith Kellogg to develop cereal products for his patients. With these innovative products, the brothers co-founded a business to get their products on the market. Unfortunately, the brothers broke business ties due to management and personal disputes.
