Robert Wadlos is known as the Alton Giant, or the Giant of Illinois. He is still the tallest person in history, measuring at 8 feet 11.1 inches in height (2.72m).

He was born in Alton, Illinois, a suburb of St. Louis. He was last measured on 27 June 1940, less than a month before his eventual death. His life was tragically cut short due to infection.

Despite short, his life was full of excitement. Robert was very intelligent, he studies law, gave to charities constantly, and had a fun loving charisma that made him lovable. He was also part of the grand Lodge, Master mason, and the youngest member to join.

This documentary shows you the tragic life, and his ups and downs.
