95 year-old Passes: Gerber Babyfood Brand Inspiration

Everyone knows the perfect pursed face of the Gerber baby which became their famous trademark in 1931, but as famous as it is, nobody ever knew who it was until 1978!  The woman whose face it is had a secret identity for most of her life. She recently passed away, and now the world knows it was her face that we’ve all come to know and love. Read this article describing how she became the brand image that fed children everywhere. She even says she wasn’t cuter than other children at the time, and gives credit solely to the artist who drew her. I loved reading this and celebrating her life and hopefully you will too!
