THE GERBER BABY TODAY ~

gbn

Ann Turner Cook (above) may well be one of the most recognizable
persons as a child of all time. 

Turner, now 88, was just a four months old in 1928 when a sketch of
her was selected in a contest to represent Gerber baby food.

For nearly 50 years, Cook’s identity as the Gerber baby was kept top
secret
because the baby food company wanted everyone to be able
to identify with the baby as their child. After retiring from teaching,
Cook became a mystery novelist.
