I'm hoping someone can give me the definitive answer to a rather perplexing problem for a book I'm currently writing. According to the book "John H. Glenn, Astronaut" by Pierce and Schuon, as well as some websites, the astronaut was born at 1201 Foster Avenue in Cambridge, Ohio. However other seemingly authoritative websites give the address as 1525 Foster Avenue. Does anyone here know the correct address?

In his own autobiographical writing, Glenn does not give the actual address, and when referring to Cambridge in a couple of interviews I found (he lived there the first two years of his life) he only mentions being born on Foster Avenue.

Have you contacted the Glenn Museum in Cambridge?

The museum is actually the John & Annie Glenn Historic Site now, relocated to Main St. in New Concord, OH.
