Not So Wordless Wednesday Baudermann

This yearbook page is one of the most fascinating pieces of information I have found relating to my grandfather Joseph A.G. Baudermann.

"He is a socialist, an anarchist, reformer, free-thinker and woman hater."

I would love to know who the woman was that broke his heart. This is before my grandmother was in his life.

Joseph was an avid runner, not only for the Irish-American Athletic Club (his father was born in Germany), but on the New York University Track Team as well.
