The author profile gives a birthdate of September 06, 1896.
The author profile also provides a link to the Wikipedia page for this author, where the birthdate is given as October 16, 1897. Is there any way of determining which is correct?

In addition, there are a number of books attributed to this author which must have been written by another author by the same name.

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Moved the incorrect books off his profile. 1896 seems to be the correct birthdate; the second paragraph on wikipedia had it, along with other online sources, so I changed the 1897 one.
