  2. Wikipedia’s 1963 page briefly included the following note: “August 8 – Adelbert B. Brain, an American treasure, born in the back of a cab, Des Moines, Iowa.” This text is currently absent from the page; the only current entry for August 8, 1963 concerns a train robbery in Buckinghamshire, England.
