Source Notes

Robson in BJA, "statement from him." Karum in AO-Science, Spring/1943, states that he gave his time as "near midnight," rectified to 10:59 PM by DeLuce and Robson. D.C. Doane "Horoscopes of U.S. Presidents" gives 11:12 PM LMT.

Buell Huggins writes, "David Burner, in "Herbert Hoover," p.5, says the birth was around midnight, August 10/11 and the Quaker church at West Branch gives it as August 11. Hoover himself gave August 11 about 1915 but later used August 10 in his "Memoirs." David Hinshaw's biography, p.3, says a letter written by Hoover's aunt said that "Early on the morning of August 11, 1874, Jesse (Hoover's father) came and tapped on the window and said, "Well, we have another General Grant at our house."

The Scotsman, published in Edinburgh on 11/08/1928 gave Hoover's birth time as "Midnight." P.A. gave "about 1:00 AM."

(See also Modern Astrology 12/18, Wheel of Life, p.97, Wemyss Vol 3 and Sabian Symbols). Sy Scholfield quotes Hoover's brother: "Hoover's older brother, Tad, wrote an unpublished memoir including a chapter

about Herbert. The chapter begins, ""My brother was born Aug. 11, 1874. I remember my father coming to my room in the early morning and telling me I had a little brother.
