Robert Pershing Wadlow (February 22, 1918 – July 15, 1940) was a man who, to this day, is the tallest person in medical history for whom there is irrefutable evidence. He is often known as the "Alton Giant" because of his Alton, Illinois hometown.

The Alton Museum of History and Art has a display of many of Robert Wadlow's things. A life size bronze just across College Avenue from the museum helps one appreciate just how tall he was.
