Oakland Insurance Broker Takes Poison Following Suicide of His Spouse

Charles I. Magill, 47, Oakland insurance man, whose wife, Mrs. Claire Magill, killed herself October 15 by taking poison, today attempted suicide himself.

Entering the bathroom of his fashionable apartment at the Regillus, 19th and Jackson Streets [in Oakland], he swallowed poison.

His daughter-in-law, Mrs. Irving Magill, was in the apartment at the time. She called an ambulance and he was taken to Alameda County Hospital, where physicians said he would recover.

Mrs. Magill told officers that her father-in-law had been despondent since his wife killed herself.

The elder Mrs. Magill had been suffering for 10 years from the effects of infantile paralysis. She left a note, stating that she was responsible for her act.

Magill found her on the floor of the same bathroom, where he attempted suicide when he returned from his San Francisco office. Mrs. Magill had ordered the poison from a nearby drug store, with specific instruction it had to be delivered by 12 noon.

The couple had two children, Irving, 19, and Mrs. [Jean Claire] Thomas Carter, 20." END
