Looks like the NYT has gotten out of the birthday business.
Daniel Burnham One of the stars of “The Devil in the White City” born on this day.
Marilyn Miller,dancer born on this day. Isn’t she beautiful. I include these pix on this site from time to time just to show my love for dance(because I cannot dance). I saw her birth date and of course her name. She is little know but looks like she was a rising star but died young.
