Source Notes

In June 2016, Sy Scholfield changed the year to 1867 citing Ziegfeld: The Man Who Invented Show Business by Ethan Mordden (Macmillan, 2008), p. 8: "Florenz Edward Ziegfeld Jr., born March 21, 1867 . . . A stubborn factoid, born of a typo in Ziegfeld's New York Times obituary, gives the year as 1869. All secure sources give 1867."

Previously this chart had same data but a year of 1869: Pat Crowley pictures a chart in AFA 11/1977 with an MC of 2 Pisces, ASC 16 Gemini. PC quotes the same source for 8:00 PM LMT, adding "I personally prefer 8:00 AM." Old-file has 1:20 PM. Grazia Bordoni database, 'entertainment' file quotes Penfield for 2AM, source unknown.
