Source Notes

In July 2005, Larry Ely writes: "She wrote a book on numerology (The Mystery of Numbers, Oxford U. Press, 1992), which I have. There on page 127 on the first chapter dealing with the meaning of the number 7, she says she was born on the 7th of the month at 7 A.M."

Original entry gave birth data as April 17, 1922 with a source listed as "Larry Ely quotes data given in "Contemporary Authors," Vol 132, Gale Research, Inc., Detroit 1991, p.370. [PT notes, however, that Gale Group as of 2005 is showing her day of birth as the 7th, not the 17th.] Her birth time is given as 7:00 AM "The Mystery of Numbers*, Oxford Univ. Press, NY, 1993, p. 127).

She gives her birth time in the opening sentence of the chapter on the number 7. We know that in European countries at this time, birth times were given to the nearest quarter of an hour."
