Dr. Francis E. Sweeney
Dr. Frank Sweeney was consider by those who worked closely with him as highly intelligent with a strong work ethic. Raised in near poverty when both parents passed away in his youth, Frank worked his way through undergraduate work, pharmacy school and medical school, all the while holding down full-time jobs. His classmates in medical school elected him vice president of his sophomore class and his professors recommended him without reservation. He graduated from medical school in St. Louis in 1928 and became a surgical resident at St. Alexis hospital in the Kingsbury Run area. It wasn’t until 1929 when he was a surgeon that he started developing paranoid schizophrenia.
In May 1938, Eliot Ness interrogated him for two weeks in a room in what is now the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel.
