    1. 1890 it is! The end of 1890, specifically, though I forget which person listed here was born in the midst of the year.

      Anyway, isn’t there something delightful in the notion that the only reason that Raymond Chandler, Ho Chi Minh, Buffalo Bill, Lawrence of Arabia, and P T Barnum couldn’t all have been in the same room as the inventor of the saxophone is that it would have been mad?
