Spencer Tracy (April 5, 1900 - June 10, 1967) was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He enlisted in the Navy at age 18 and was trained in Chicago, where he was at the time that World War I came to an end. He was married only once, to Louise Treadwell. He had a son who was born deaf and a daughter. He frequently had affairs, many of them very public, but did not divorce his wife due to religious reasons. In 1941, he began an affair with Katharine Hepburn, and they remained together until he died 26 years later.
