Major Gantz, known as The Smallest Man on Earth. Gantz was born in 1865 in Iowa and joined the circus in his teens. Records list him as standing anywhere from 18 inches tall to 24 inches and weighing 30 pounds. At one point he was on exhibit with Willie Stout, who weighed 712 pounds. Photo by Frank Wendt.
