LIVED ASMAN, DIES TO]
TOLEDO, 0., Aug. 7.?Married and
divorced as a man, wearing nan's
attire, doing his work adhering to
nan's customs and activities lor the
last 24 years, only to be unmasked
by death, was the mysterious secret
of Dr. Samuel Ackerman. optician,
whose body wag found In the Maumee
river here?the body of a woman.
Knowing she could not establish
ber age, having been born In Russia,
Dr. Ackerman feared she would be
called for selective service examination,
and her secret would be discovered.
That, neighbors say, combined
with financial difficulties and ill
health, led her to suicide.
Police say, also, Dr. Ackerman
adopted man's atlrle to keep a child,
oelleved to be hers, In New York and
IroflHoH thft rthvalfAl ti?Rt hecailSA dig
jovery of her sex would disqualify her
from supporting the child.
Dr. Aokerman's "wife* piever
knew her "husband" was a wo
man until told by the police. The
optician's closest friends, phylslclans
who had examined "him"
for signs of tuberculosis, members
of the synagogue which "he'
frequented, even girls to whom
"he" Is said to have made lovewere
astounded to hear Dr. Ackerman
had deceived them.
Pop 24 vara sinre she came from
Russia, the girl succeeded In growing
up from "boyhood1 to "manhood"?
without creating suspicion!
Her real name no ose knows. Even
her divorced "wife' who Is now Mrs.
William Wise, does not know whence
she came or who she really Is.
"I don't know where 'he' came
from. I don't know any relatives
he' might have had. I married 'him'
In New York. I don't know anyone
n New York who might know 'him.'"
Neighbors knew Dr. Ackerman as
a quiet, palo-faced "man" who
would rather spend the evenings
reading or sitting on the porch, than
frequenting cafes. Dr. O. M. Main,
friend of Ackerman, said he often
walked to work with "him", but never
suspected "he" was a woman.
Friends still find it difficult to exLOCAL
