Kellogg (April 7, 1860 – October 6, 1951), was an American industrialist in food manufacturing, best known as the founder of the Kellogg Company, which to this day produces a wide variety of popular breakfast cereals.
He was a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and practiced vegetarianism as a dietary principle taught by his church.
Later, he founded the Kellogg Arabian Ranch and made it into a renowned establishment for the breeding of Arabian horses.
Kellogg started the Kellogg Foundation in 1934 with $66 million in Kellogg company stock and investments, a donation that would be worth over a billion dollars in today's economy.
Kellogg continued to be a major philanthropist throughout his life.
