Source Notes

Dr Felix Jay [original AA database]. - birth dates in Wikipedia conflict, as one line claims 24 April, the other 23 April [Mark Okrasa]. The original AA database gave a birth time of 11:20:08 GMT and a date of 5 May. I suspect this actually meant 23:20:08 GMT, corresponding to a LMT of 01:00 the following day - so going with 24 April at 01:00 LMT here. There is doubt, though, since the original date was given as 5 May, but this may be because the 23/24 April date was Julian calendar - Finland adopted the Gregorian calendar in December 1912 [Chris Mitchell]
