Edwin Perkins (inventor)
Edwin Elijah Perkins (January 8, 1889 – July 3, 1961), born in Lewis, Iowa, U.S., invented the powdered drink mix Kool-Aid in 1927 in Hastings, Nebraska after his family had moved there from Iowa in 1893. As a young man he worked with products like Jell-O, which was sold in his father's general store in Hendley. When Perkins came to Hastings at age thirty-one in 1920, his principal interests were patent medicines and household products. With that background, he began producing a line of over 125 "Onor-Maid" items which were sold door-to-door and by mail. One of the most popular was "Fruit-Smack", a fruit-flavored liquid concentrate.

Demand for this product was so great that it soon had international sales. Before long, the Perkins Products Company was focusing entirely on Kool-Aid, and in 1931 Mr
