LMR quotes an article in N.Y.Times magazine by her biographer, Sylvia Jukes Morris, "I tracked down her B.C. and found that she was not born on April 10, 1903 but on March 10, and not on Riverside Drive but in the less genteel environms of W. 125th St. I told her about the dates and she stared at me. 'Mom always said I was born at Easter. Anyway, people born under Aires are much more lighthearted and gay than those born under Pisces.'" The biography by Stephen Shadegg gave 10:00 PM, April 10, 1903, Long Island, NY.
Susan Zuber-Chall, A former board director of the Church of Light, confirms this story in June 2000, from a client, Peter Luce, Clair Booth Luce's stepson. He said, "On her death bed Clair began chuckling and when he asked
her what was so funny she replied that for her entire life she had lied about her birth date, that she was really a Pisces and not an Aries as she had led everyone to believe. When Peter asked her why, she replied
that she hated the sign of Pisces, thinking that it was "wishy washy" and she decided that she wanted to become an Aires."
