Sy Scholfield cites date, year and place from "The International Who's Who of Women 2002" and quotes her for "Scorpio rising" in "Maggie Alderson comes up with the long and short of it for a vexing hemline question," by her, Sydney Morning Herald, 21 April 2013 [1].

A speculative time of 2:45pm gives mid Scorpio rising.
