Ted Sandwina, of German-Jewish-American heritage, was born in Sioux City, Iowa, when his mother, Katie Sandwina, appeared there in the Barnum & Bailey Circus. (The family name actually may be "Sandivina.") His mother was billed as "The World's Strongest Woman." (Source: The Ring, April 1930 issue, p. 65.) Sandwina later appeared on the cover of June 1930 The Ring magazine. (See also the 1928 Everlast Boxing Record, page 118.)
