Jun 02It was generally believed that Johnny (Peter John) Weissmuller was born in Pennsylvania, however, Olympic historian David Wallechinsky states in his book (THE COMPLETE BOOK OF THE OLYMPICS, Penguin, 1984) that Johnny was actually born in German Swabia (now Romania) and emigrated to the United States with his family in 1908. Younger brother Peter was born in the United States, and when a matter of Johnny's citizenship came up prior to the 1924 Olympics, the baptismal documents for the brothers were switched, thus creating the confusion.

Jan 01At five seconds past midnight, while the shouts of Happy New Year were still ringing out, Robert N. Cronk entered the world in Savannah, Georgia. Cronk was the first person to be born in the United States that year. He spent his adult years, at least 36 of them in government service and as a private pilot. Cronk added to his 15 minutes of fame by composing music, penning stories and poems, and entertaining country music fans for nine years as a disc jockey by the name of Bob Norwood (primarily on WQIK in Jacksonville, Florida.) Think about this – when Bob was born, there weren’t any radio deejays.Ref: 4
