Place of Birth?[edit]

I'm not sure what the rules are for Place of Birth...although Aldrin may have been born at a hospital in Glen Ridge, it is well-known that he lived, grew up and graduated from high school in the town of Montclair, NJ not Glen Ridge. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.215.33.194 (talk) 19:02, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

The hospital now known as Mountainside Hospital straddles Glen Ridge and Montclair. Most of it is in Montclair. The hospital says they are in Montclair, and list the address as; "HackensackUMC Mountainside
One Bay Avenue Montclair, NJ 07042", but you can also find the address listed as: 1 Bay Ave, Glen Ridge, NJ. My daughter was born there and the birth certificate says Glen Ridge. DavidRavenMoon (talk) 17:51, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Place of birth (II)[edit]

Problem , Grew up in Montclair NJ Not Glen Ridge nj — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.92.108.125 (talk) 18:23, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

We have two citation footnotes in the text which verify that he was actually born in a hospital bordering the town, and that his birth certificate says Glen Ridge. That does not contradict that he grew up in Montclair, and is what we have to go with. Please stop changing it. JustinTime55 (talk) 20:05, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Yes, people born at Mountainside Hospital have Glen Ridge on their birth certificates, even though the hospital lists itself as being 1 Bay Ave, Montclair, NJ. DavidRavenMoon (talk) 17:56, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Year of HS graduation?[edit]

I don't have the cited source available to me right now, but did Aldrin graduate high school in 1946 or 1947? Since he was born in January 1930, if he graduated in 1946, he was only 16. Did he skip a grade, or did the school system allow early admission? Hard to tell if this mini-"edit war" is based on vandalism or not. JustinTime55 (talk) 20:57, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Archiving talk[edit]

This talk page has 42 43 sections, and goes back almost a decade, and old dead conversations no longer being monitored are getting noncontemporaneous responses. Unless someone objects, I will turn on auto-archiving to clean it up. TJRC (talk) 23:31, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

No objections in almost a week, so I'm turning on archiving. TJRC (talk) 00:29, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
