Isadore (Izzy) Schwartz (Hebrew name, used occasionally, was likely Yisrael, or "Israel"), orphaned at the age of two, grew up in the Hebrew Orphan Asylum in New York's East Village. Although too small for the military, he still managed to enlist, eventually rising to the rank of corporal and becoming the US Army's Flyweight Champion.
There still seems to be many fights missing from Schwartz's record, particularly in the early part of his career when he fought out of the Detroit area.
