Birthplace of Dr. Fred William Thomas, December 30, 1898. He later became a surgeon who traveled back and forth from America to Nazi Germany. He was ultimately arrested and convicted of being a Nazi Spy. Ultimately, a legal appeal overturned his conviction and the U.S. Dept. of Justice dropped the criminal charges against him, because the U.S. Government determined he had not been spying for Nazi Germany. Dr. Thomas died in 1986 and his story never made it out into the mainstream media.
