Research Notes

The 1940 Census enumeration cited indicates that Antonin is a 4 year old daughter born in New Jersey and living with father S Eugene Scalia and mother Catherine Scalia, both teachers. This fits his biography except for the sex. We've included the source as the only record found in the 1940 census which matches the parental data provided by the Wikipedia source (1-2 of 2 results for search criteria Name: antonin scalia, Event: Birth, Event Range: 1936-1936, Father Name: Salvatore Eugene, Mother Name: Catherine Louise. The second record pulled is for a Lester Scall with parents named Jacob and Belle.) It is our belief that the sex was an error made by the census taker based on the name given.
