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. The revised edition (ISBN 978-0-8108-4145-1) is more than 800 pages long and adds many more details of Bing's daily activities as well as many reviews of Bing's performances and newspaper reports of his life. More recently Malcolm has produced biographies of Perry Como and Rosemary Clooney.
