Circus Performer
    Suffered from hypertrichosis universalis (hair all over the body)
    Exhibited as ‘Darwin’s Missing Link’
    She was covered with black hair from head to toe.
    She chose to work in circuses even after coming of age.
    She pretended to be a ‘wild girl,’ but she actually came from an upper-class background.
    One writer said she became ‘masculine’ late in life (imagine that).
    She was kidnapped from her home country as a small child and forced to perform in sideshows as a ‘monkey girl.’
    Legitimate newspapers claimed she was the missing link, but she wasn’t.
    She was extremely intelligent, and spoke English, French and German well.
    She made a lot of money off her medical condition.
    She died before her fiftieth birthday.
