Back in the 1950s a young woman named Joanne Schieble was a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin. While there, she became romantically involved with another graduate student, a PhD candidate from Syria. The relationship turned sexual and, in 1954, she got pregnant.
Her father did not approve of the man she was involved with, so she didn’t marry him at the time. She temporarily left school, went to San Francisco and stayed there until she gave birth. She then gave the baby boy up for adoption.
