from the Detroit College of
Medicine, now Wayne State
University's medical school.

;:trried Hannah Labold of
fetroit, the daughter of a
almudic scholar, and he and
C new bride moved to Re-
.solic. Besides Sadie, the
tlirschmans had four other
children, including Dr. Louis
J., Jesse F., Irving L., and
Fredericka H.
Seven years later, Dr.
Hirschman and his family
moved to Norway, Mich.,
where he was in charge of
the Penn Iron Mining Co.
Hospital until his death in
1886.
Miss Hirschman also is the
granddaughter of Louis J.
Hirschman, a native of
Fuerth, Bavaria, Germany,
who was forced to flee from
his native land due to his
participation in the 1848
revolution in Germany.
