This Bing Crosby chronology is based on the 1997 book A Diary of a Lifetime by Malcolm Macfarlane, editor of BING magazine, and prepared for members of the International Club Crosby. In 2001 Scarecrow Press published a greatly expanded edition of the diary called Bing Crosby Day by Day. Whereas Diary of a Lifetime was a mere 96 pages in length, the revised edition (ISBN 978-0-8108-4145-1) was more than 800 pages long, adding many more details of Bing's daily activities as well as reviews of Bing's performances and newspaper reports of his life. More recently Malcolm has produced biographies of Perry Como and Rosemary Clooney.
