Doidge was a veteran of the U. S. Marine Corps, in which he he served during the First World War.
At one time, Doidge was suspected of being Oudini, because of the number of copies of the 1909 Oudini book "The Great Mystery" he had available to sell. However, John Henry Grossman wrote in his MUM "Ask the Doctor" column that Walter B. Gibson informed him that Doidge told him that Frank J. Rowan, who lived near Haverhill, Massachusetts, was actually Oudini.
