The secrets of Dixon's Famous Chili, explained

A century after Dixon's Chili opened, Stephen Steffes-the general manager and great-great-nephew of founder Vergne Dixon-realized he didn't know the restaurant's exact birthday. So he started dusting off the memorabilia that's been in his family for four generations and rediscovered a recording of former president Harry S. Truman talking about Dixon's.
