* Gene Fowler, Jr. was most assuredly not born
in June as a couple of sources report, nor
was he born May 27th. Gene's son has confirmed
to Internet Accuracy Project that May 26th
is, in fact, his father's date of birth.
Also, he did not die in Woodland Hills
as some sources erroneously report. The
home at which he died is actually several
miles away from Woodland Hills.
The most in-depth of more than two dozen
sources consulted in preparing this profile,
was the 1962 biography, The Young Man from Denver,
by his brother Will Fowler.
