In the biography on your site on George Edward Gray, his
date of death is listed as January 1, 1913 but at the end of the
biography there is a statement that says this date is wrong and that he
died about 1883 – 2 years before he retired!) Was this put in as a joke
or is 1883 true?

[P.S.] ASCE has an article written by him in 1897. Several years after Mr. Farrar says he died.
[P.P.S.] The reason I question it is ASCE has a
memior written at the time stating his death as January 1, 1913. Usually
our memoirs are extremely accurate and wouldn't be off by 20 years on a
date of death. If you could verify, I would be greatly appreciative.
