POTD ON VACATION - I'm on vacation this week without reliable internet, so this week's POTDs will be from my archive.

HISTORICALLY TALL - In the 1980's, the World's Tallest Woman was Sandy Allen of Shelbyville, Indiana. I photographed Ms. Allen at Grundman's Shoes in Vincennes, Indiana, where she got her custom-made shoes. Her height, at 7 feet 7 inches, was due to a tumor in her pituitary gland. Ms Allen held the title of Tallest Woman for the last 16 years of her life. Sandra Elaine Allen ( June 18, 1955-August 13, 2008), once the World's Tallest Woman.

As a professor of physiology, I lectured on gigantism. Hope fully Sandra made the best of her situation. Sadly, it creates health problems and shortens one's life.
