Ann Turner Cook, The Original Gerber Baby, is an 85-year-old great grandmother now

Cook’s image, a simple charcoal sketch by her neighbor and artist Dorothy Hope Smith, was chosen in a 1928 contest to “find a face to represent a baby food advertising campaign.” Cook was only 4 months old when the sketch was done. [via]
