July 2 

Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, was born on July 2nd 1489, though he was not actually Archbishop at the time.  The day was also the birthday in 1714 of Christoph von Gluck, the German composer and in 1862 of  William Henry Bragg, the English physicist.  David Owen was born this day in 1938 and Kenneth Clarke in 1940.  That means he must have been in the year above me at school rather than in my year, which is a considerable relief.


1566: Nostradamus died on July 2nd 1566 and Jean Jacques Rousseau in 1778.  In 1937 Amelia Earhart chose this day to disappear over the Pacific, and Ernest Hemingway died in 1961.  Betty Grable died in 1973 and James Stewart in 1997.
