The Schwabe Suicides

To a surprising extent for one family the Schwabes committed suicide at a higher rather than most other families .

Louis Schwabe, Frank Burdett Schwabe, Cecil Langshaw Schwabe, Vera May Schwabe, Hugo Schwabe, and Arthur Green Schwabe all killed themselves. Most used revolvers to do so except for Louis who drank sulfuric acid and Hugo who slashed the veins in his legs with a razor.
