Edwin Elijah Perkins
Birth: Jan. 8, 1889
Death: Jul. 3, 1961

Edwin and Kitty were the creators of Kool-Aid. They created it in their home in Hastings, Nebraska during The Great Depression, both as a source of income for themselves, and as a "poor man's" soda pop for families on next-to-nothing budgets.
