UV INDEX: When the World’s Tallest Man Came to Lebanon

  • Reporter Gary Ebbels is six feet tall but Henry Hite, the world's tallest man at eight-feet, two inches, is head and shoulders above him. Young Dick Coutermarsh, of Lebanon, N.H., barely comes above the giant's knee cap. Hite, who has been travelling on a promotion tour for Wilson-Sinclair meats for eight years, was at the IGA store in Lebanon on June 4, 1970. "Of course, Hite is just a stage name," he said. "My real name's Lowe, but no one would believe me if I went by it." (Valley News - Jim Higgins) Copyright Valley News. May not be reprinted or used online without permission.
