Assassin (Failed)
    Attempted to assassinate former president Theodore Roosevelt (October 14, 1912)
    Found not guilty of attempted murder by reason of insanity
    Spent the rest of his life in a Wisconsin mental hospital
    He was an anarchist.
    He claimed that dead President William McKinley had told him to kill Roosevelt in a dream.
    He stalked Roosevelt for weeks waiting for chances to strike.
    He shot Roosevelt with a .38 caliber pistol during a Bull Moose campaign rally.
    Theodore Roosevelt had a 50-page speech in his pocket, which slowed the bullet and saved his life.
    Despite being shot by Schrank, Roosevelt demanded to the crowd not to hurt him, then delivered a speech he was planning to give before going to the hospital.
    He may have been insane.
    In nearly 30 years of being in a mental institution, he never received a single visitor or letter.
