On My Way to 1900…

Evelyn Nesbit(1884-1967)For years the family lived in near-poverty,but by the time she reached adolescence her startling beauty came to the attention of several local artists.She became one of the most in-demand artists' models in NY.What about her boyfriends?J.Barrymore was supplanted in Nesbit's life by Thaw(1871–1947)of Pittsburgh,the son of a rich man.Various sources document Thaw’s drug use,which became habitual after his expulsion from Harvard.He reportedly injected large amounts of cocaine and morphine,mixing the 2 drugs into 1 injection.He was known to also use laudanum;a full bottle in a single swallow.On 1906,Nesbit and Thaw saw a lover of Evelyn at a restaurant and he ran into him.He murdered renowned architect White who had been the lover of Evelyn Nesbit.He fired 3 shots at close range into White's face,killing him instantly.He was found not guilty by reason of insanity,and sentenced to incarceration for life at the Hospital for the Criminally Insane(release in 1922).
