It is unclear below whether the “M.” in “M. Czolgosz” represents an incorrect first initial (should be “P.”) or an erroneous version of “Mr.”


Czolgosz’ Parents Destitute

     M. Czolgosz and his wife, parents of Leon Czolgosz, the assassin of President McKinley, have applied to the charity department of the city of Cleveland for assistance. Mr. Czolgosz is 83 and his wife 75 years of age. Investigators sent to the little home at 5716 Hosmer avenue [sic], S. E., found them in two small rooms. Both are too old to work. There are four surviving children, and they are unable to support the aged parents in addition to their own families.
