"...two birth dates, May 2, 1903 and May 3, 1904. Bing was not born on either of those two dates. Like many entertainers in his day, he (or his press agents) thought it would be a good idea to make him younger than he actually was, so after a certain point, they changed the date of his birth to May 2, 1903, then to 1904, and once even to 1907. The fact of the matter is that Bing was born on May 2, 1901."
