[1] Most online sources claim Milwaukee, likely due to Wikipedia's error. He was actually born in Philadelphia, but spent some early years in Milwaukee. See "Former Brewer Mascot Has Played in 14 Films in the Last 18 Months", The Milwaukee Journal, 5 February 1940. Also his obituary, "Abner Biberman, Actor, Director", The New York Times, 24 June 1977, confirms this.
