History

Jane Abbott was an American visitor to Vienna in 1914 when Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austrian throne, and his wife, Sophie, were assassinated in Sarajevo, leading to the outbreak of the First World War. Abbott travelled to Europe in April 1914, with her husband, Dr. Donald Putnam Abbott, a recent graduate of Rush Medical College in Chicago. Dr. Abbott was intending to further his medical training in Vienna, but this plan was abandoned following the assassinations. The Abbotts left Austria at the end of August, travelling by train across Europe to England. They returned to the United States at the end of September.
