Although we're working on it, most authors in the database cannot yet be found by date. If there's somebody you think should have been included here, please let me know. Note: To the extent possible, the dates in the system are all Gregorian, for authors born during observance of the Julian calendar we record the Gregorian date and note the Julian (Old Style) date separately, but that can't be searched for.
