Monthly History Highlights

April 7, 1860 – Pass the Cornflakes

William Kellogg, the co-discoverer of flaked cereals, was born on April 7, 1860. He and his brother, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, created cornflakes by accident. After a patient of Dr. Kellogg’s broke her false teeth on a piece of hard toast, the Kelloggs tried to find a new breakfast food for her. They experimented by boiling wheat and then feeding the porridge-like mixture through a roller. The wheat came out in flakes.

April 10, 1912 – Over 100 Years Ago...

The R.M.S. Titanic began its maiden voyage from Southampton, England, on April 10, 1912. A few nights later, the ship struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic and sank. About 1,500 passengers were lost in the disaster. The Titanic was also a mail ship (R.M.S. stands for “Royal Mail Ship), and five postal clerks were among those who drowned. The men were last seen hauling sacks of mail up to deck level, hoping it might be salvaged.
