Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes date, year and place of birth from the online California birth index; and Ascendant Sign from the article "Rapping With Sally Eaton of Hair" by Sally Eaton in "Astrology Today Magazine" (circa 1970) as repinted on an official Hair website [1], in which Eaton writes: "Jerry [Ragni] says he's a Virgo with Leo rising, Moon in Aquarius. Jim Rado says he's Aquarius with Virgo rising, Moon in Leo."

A speculative time of 8:35pm puts mid-Virgo (15 degrees) on the ascendant.
