Mrs. C.M. Anderson

Mrs. C.M. AndersonabortionistsfemaleIn mid-July of 1911, 24-year-old homemaker Ragna M. Beck died from an abortion performed in May by Mrs. C.M. Anderson. Anderson was held by the Coroner and arrested, but the case was stricken off during trial.

In October, 1922, 24-year-old homemaker Lillian Hulbert died at Chicago’s St. Anne’s Hospital from complications of a criminal abortion performed on her there that day. The coroner identified a Mrs. M.C. Anderson as responsible for Lillian’s death. Anderson’s profession is given as nurse or midwife.

I don’t know if these two Mrs. Andersons are the same woman or not.
