Model for U.S. Coin Revealed As a Jewess at Marriage

Download PDF for this date

Through her marriage it was revealed that Miss Doris Doscher, whose face adorns the new twenty-five cent pieces issued by the National Treasury, is a Jewess. She was married yesterday to Dr. H. William Baum at the Jewish Institute of Religion.

Miss Doscher was selected several years ago by the government representatives as the model for the new twenty-five cent pieces because she characterized “the highest type of American Womanhood.”
