Update: Again, out of curiousity, I looked up in wikipedia the list of famous people born on the same day as my dad. (Although we celebrated June 30th for the longest time as his birthday, I believe my parents agree that his actual birth day was July 1st.) And wikipedia has two entries on that day, both Nobel laureates!
