If you’ve ever seen baby food, chances are, you’ve seen the household brand – Gerber. Since its founding in 1927, Gerber has steadily become a household name. And with that name, comes an iconic logo – the Gerber baby.

The sketch of this baby behind this original logo is 4-month-old Ann Turner Cook. Cook was chosen as the logo for the company when they announced a nationwide contest to find an official face.

It was Dorothy Hope Smith that submitted her rough charcoal sketch portrait of Cook with her chubby cheeks and mouth puckered open. Smith told the company that she would submit a finished portrait if decided as the winner of the contest, but Gerber decided they liked the portrait the way it was.

Fast-forward to today, Ann Turner Cook turns 90 years young and still looks adorable! She is now retired and a proud grandmother in her family.
