Marian Anderson is buried in Eden Cemetery which is in Collingdale (Delaware County, Pa.), not Philadelphia.

Thank you for pointing out this error. I have updated the article.

I went to this article after seeing a feature on Marian Anderson on the Day of Discovery program. They gave her birthdate as the one you discount. The birthday you choose would be good to footnote. Also the birth year you list in the introduction is different from the year in the first paragraph.
The Day of Discovery show said that Marian received an honorary degree from Ewha Women’s University in Korea (sp?). This would be an interesting fact to include.

Thank you for your comment. The confusion over her date of birth has been fixed, and I have also added mention of her honorary degrees including the one you mentioned. Thank you again for your valuable feedback.
