Exploring the limited information available about this tumultuous period in Ott’s life, this chapter explores how historians wrestle with limited sources, unanswered questions, contradictions, and the ways our historical subjects may possibly lie or mislead us. The chapter uses Ott’s passport application and early divorce documents to unpack the period.

Keywords:   passport, women’s medical education, historical methodology
