Notes on sources:  Most birth and death dates, and birth locations come from World War 1 and World War 2 draft registration data, and from U.S. Passport Applications 1795-1925 data, as well as Social Security and state death records.  Some information on where a musician lived or worked come from U.S. Census data.  Biographical data often comes from reference books such as "Groves' Dictionary of Music and Musicians", and other directories of musicians, as well as from my files.  Also, the many books of reminiscences of musicians and their careers and of orchestras are listed in the footnotes to this webpage  Leopold Stokowski- Philadelphia Orchestra Bibliography, Sources and Credits elsewhere in this site www.stokowski.org
