Robert Wadlow Shoe - Gone

The Adobe House Museum in Hillsboro, Kansas had a shoe or a pair of shoes that belonged to Robert Wadlow, World's Tallest Man. I know this because I lived several years in Hillsboro, Kansas and my father had been a friend to Robert in the late Thirties. I noticed you listed where you could view Robert's shoes.

July 2007: No longer on display. The Museum changed from the Adobe House Museum to the Mennonite Settlement Museum in 2000, with predictable results for the Shoe.
