Oddity
    (1868-January 31, 1904)
    Birth name was Fedor Jefticheff (Jeftichew)
    Suffered from Hypertrichosis
    He has mistakenly been listed as being born in St. Petersburg, Russia, but was actually born in Finland, which at the time was part of the Czarist Russian empire.
    His father, Adrian Jefticheff, was just as hairy faced as he and was part of a European sideshow act as well, but is never mentioned in the same vein as his son.
    Once P.T. Barnum employed his services, the huckster had no use for his father and told the general public that a hunter had tracked him and his father to their cave and captured them. The father was described as savage and could not be civilized. Another story had him as an orphan raised by wolves.
    He was often mistaken for Stefan Bibrowski, known in the freak circuit as Lionel the Lion-Faced Man.
    His name is synonymical with 'freak.'
    He was often in ill health.
    He didn't particularly enjoy being a freak, but he was well paid for the cruel twist of fate nature played on him.
    He spoke fluent Russian, German, and English.
    He toured Europe and the U.S. extensively and was treated very well.
    Annette Funicello had a hit song titled 'Jo-Jo the Dog-Faced Boy' (1959).
    He died of pneumonia at age 36 (1904).
