Oelwein (Ia.) Daily Register – September 9, 1954

Famed as the “ugliest” man in wrestling ring, Maurice Tillet, 31, is dead in Chicago after more than 15 years entertaining audiences in the mat sport.  Tillet, known as “The Angel,” died 13 hours after his discoverer and manager, Karl Pojello, also a wrestler, succumbed at the age of 61.  Tillet, discovered in Paris in 1940, was suffering from heart disease and was heart-broken over Pojello’s death.
