Born in London
There is some confusion about whether Bartlett was born in London or Stoke-on-Trent.
One reference that indicates Stoke-on-Trent is an obituary by Cox (2002, ISI Newsl 26:77).
Several references indicate London, specifically Chiswick, London. Not only an obituary (Statistician 51:399-402), but separate interviews by Gani (1982, The Making of Statisticians, Springer, 41-60) and Olkin (1989, Stat Sci 4:151-163).
Given the amount of biographical detail provided by Bartlett himself during the interviews, London seems much more likely than Stoke-on-Trent, unless further references can be supplied.
