Doherty was born in 1887 with a rare genetic mutation called “hypertrichosis", or “werewolf syndrome", which causes excessive body hair.  She was billed as “The Minnesota Woolly Baby".  At birth, she was covered all over in two-inch long, silky blonde hair.  She began exhibiting as a sideshow “freak" at the age of two, and remained in the business until 1915.
