Brief biography

The best and most accurate brief biography is the one at Wikipedia

Many other short biographies of Sills can be found online. Most, however, have conflicting dates, achievements and life events. We recommend using any of these with caution, checking any points against the Wikipedia entry and our site before accepting their accuracy.

We also caution against relying on printed biographies, including Sills’ own autobiographies, for accurate dates and achievements, especially those concerning her career before 1951.  Many inaccuracies have been perpetuated in numerous sources, giving the misinformation the weight of authority.

Our goal is to correct inaccuracies as we discover them and to verify, in primary sources, the dates, venues and achievements of Sills’ career.
