RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia
Sorry gentlemen, but neither is correct.

Clue#1-The person under consideration died before knowing that Tarbell would make him famous.

Bonus clue-don't get hung up on the term doctor. Doctor doesn't always mean M.D.

RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia
Clue # 2 - In her notes, Tarbell wrote of this person:

“Rarely see a more interesting old face—furrowed on the forehead and from the eyes and under the lids as I never saw a face furrowed.” She described his forehead as a “perfect checker-board” adding that the flesh around his eyes reminded her of a “hill side cut by heavy rains and the gullies dried. The flesh is folded up in wrinkles under the eyes but the cheeks are red and healthy.”

Sorry Mike, but that's not it.

Steve, he is not a historian.

Clue#3-Tarbell first interviewed him almost 15 years before writing about him.
