Summary
Gum has been around for centuries. The ancient Greeks chewed it. The American Indians chewed it. Chewing gum became especially popular in the US in the early 1900s when Charles Adams began commercially selling it, but the gum we know today - Bubble Gum - hadn't been invented yet. Until Walter Diemer, and accountant, did a bit of night lab work
