The woman in the middle of the photograph with the caption "Jane Heap and Margaret Anderson with Ezra Pound" is, to the best of my knowledge, Mina Loy, not Margaret Anderson. This can be verified by checking Carolyn Burke's biography of Mina Loy, which I don't have on hand. As the picture doesn't feature Antheil, and Pound, Heap, or Loy aren't even mentioned in the article, I'm deleting it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:55, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

month of birth[edit]

I have another source that says Antheil was born in July (the rest of the date is the same). Is this correct? Classicalkid87 15:01, 2 July 2007 (UTC)


I don't want to alter the main page without first checking, seeing as the writer seems so sure about their correctness, but Antheil's autobiography makes mention of his family in Poland, whom he visits. Anyone have any better knowledge than I do? Tomkeene (talk) 16:12, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the question. I am Antheil's grandnephew and I can tell you definitively that George was not Polish.

Secondly, fortunately or unfortunately, you can't, not on Wikipedia, at least. See Wikipedia:Citing sources and Wikipedia:Verifiability. Hyacinth (talk) 23:47, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
What type of citation would be valid to prove that George Antheil was not Polish? - A. Antheil McTighe —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:30, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Isn't it true that Antheil and actress Hedy Lamarr patented frequency-hopping radio in 1942, the technology that makes cell phones possible? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:05, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

List of Works[edit]

The list of works for Antheil changes everytime I see it; would it be possible to put up a complete list and link it off? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ulyssesm90 (talkcontribs) 01:23, 1 September 2008 (UTC)


Do Antheil's brief encounters with Stravinsky really warrant a prominent Stravinsky picture in this article? I would vote no. Ribbonabaca (talk) 20:15, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
