    "F.M.Sackett Ex-Kentucky Senator Dies
    Louisville Lawyer and Business Man Served as Ambassador to Germany 1929 to 1933
    Baltimore, May 18.—(AP.)—Frederick M. Sackett, 72, former United States Senator of Kentucky and ex-ambassador to Germany, died suddenly in a Baltimore hotel at 9:30 a.m. today.
    The senator was in Baltimore with his wife who is convalescing from a recent eye operation. He attended the annual meeting of the Association of Harvard Clubs.
    Senator Sackett was appointed by former President Hoover in December 1929, to succeed Dr. Jacob Gould Schurman as American ambassador to Germany. He relinquished the post in 1933.
    Senator Sackett was born in Providence, R.I., December 17, 1868, received a bachelor's degree from Brown University in 1890 and three years later his law degree from Harvard.
    After Harvard, he ppracticed law at Columbus and Cincinnati, went to Louisville in 1898. There he married Miss Olive Speed, member of one of Kentucky's wealthiest families.
    He continued as lawyer until 1907 when he virtually abandoned legal pursuits in favor of coal, public utilities, banking, real estate and cememnt interests.
    Resigned From Senate.
    Always connected with civic affairs, the senator served as Federal food administrator for Kentucky and as directorof the Louisville branch of the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank.
    In 1924 he received Kentucky's Republican nomination for senator and defeated Senator A.O. Stanley who sought reelection.
    He resigned the Senate in 1930 to accept President Hoover's appointment as ambassador to Germany. A few months after the Reichstag fire in 1933, he resigned his post, returned to the United States and seldom spoke of the genesis of the Nazi rise to power, despite the many interviews sought of him on that subject.
    Senator Sackett figured in the news again a year later when his wife's niece, Mrs. Berry V. Stoll, was kidnapped. With her abductor asking for a $50,000 ransom, one of the largest manhunts in Kentucky was launched, with county, state and Federal officers participating.
    The ransom was paid to the kidnapper and later Mrs. Stoll was found unharmed in an Indianapolis apartment house.
    A short time later, Thomas H. Robinson of Nashville, Tenn., was captured at Glendale, Calif., and sentenced to life imprisonment for the kidnapping.
    Since then, Sackett has remained in the background, tending to his Louisville business interests."

    In the first World War he served with the Three Hundred and Sixth Field Artilllery, Seventy-seventh division, winning the Distinguished Service Medal, and the Croix de Guerre in addition to the DSC.
    A former New York state assemblyman and senator, he leaves his wife, three sons and two daughters."
