Johnny Eckhardt was born on August 27th 1911 at his parents home in Baltimore, Md. He was one of two twins.

The other brother, Robert, was born a normal, healthy child.


Johnny, though healthy, was born with no lower half.  His body stopped just below the ribs.
"Oh my lord, he's a broken doll." cried one of the midwives as Johnny came out.

However, in his 79 years on this earth Johnny Eck (his name was shortened by his first manager)

accomplished more than most people with legs
