I was born in
Denver, Col., on the 23rd day of April, 1906. I was considered
a normal girl until the age of 12 years, 3 months. At this time
a great change came over me. The right side of my body was
gradually growing out of proportion. At times I was very moody.
I enjoyed girls' sports but at this time I became interested in
My parents, becoming alarmed, sent for the family physician. He
examined me and said that I should have been twins, but that
nature in her own way had created both sexes in my body and that
at this time the male sex began to manifest itself. In the
medical world a person of my type is called a "Hermaphrodite."
Frequently I am asked if I will ever marry. As to this all I
can say is that I do not know. I have been on exhibition in all
the principle cities of the U. S. and Canada.
