Kathryn Melda "Kitty" Shoemaker Perkins
Birth: May 2, 1891
Death: Mar. 27, 1977

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.
