Genealogy Blogging Beat – Monday 12 May 2014

12 May 1907. American actress Katharine Houghton Hepburn was born at Hartford, CT. Nominated for 12 Oscars over the course of her career, she won four times: for 1933’ s Morning Glory, 1967’ s Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, 1968’ s The Lion in Winter and 1981’ s On Golden Pond. She is best remembered for her on- and offscreen pairing with Spencer Tracy. Together, they made nine films, including Adam’s Rib and Woman of the Year, and enjoyed a 27-year personal relationship. There is often confusion regarding her date of birth: in her 1991 autobiography, Me: Stories of My Life, she confirmed the May date and admitted often giving out a late brother’s birth date as her own. She died at Old Saybrook, CT, 29 June 2003.
