Calendar* Correction: Florence Ballard

You will in the next few days notice that many websites report that Florence Ballard died on February 21, 1976.  This is incorrect, according to the books Motown:  The Golden Years:  More than 100 Rare Photographs by Bill Dahl and The Encyclopedia of Sixties Cool:  A Celebration of the Grooviest People by Chris Strodder.

Ballard entered Mt. Carmel Mercy Hospital in Detroit, Michigan on February 21, and died the next morning from cardiac arrest when she developed a blood clot in one of her coronary arteries.
