Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes data from her obituary in the Knight Ridder Tribune Business News. Washington: Sep 17, 2006: Dr. Hill was born in Boston on Oct. 10, 1910, to Jacob and Fannie Foster, both Lithuanian immigrants.

"She took great delight in that 10/10/10," said Dr. Fishbein. "The lore was that she was also born at 10 in the morning or some such thing." PT notes that time was not recorded on Massachusetts birth certificates prior to 1940.
