Newt Scamander, author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, is born

Commentary

Notes

Newt's birthdate comes from a prop created for the film series. The creators of those props, MinaLima, have stated that the facts on their props are given to them by Rowling herself, so we assume that the date on the "travel permit" is canon.
