Emperor's Bridge Campaign Marks Bicentennial With "Emperor Norton at 200" Series
The nonprofit Emperor's Bridge Campaign works on a variety of fronts — research, education, advocacy — to advance the legacy of the 19th-century eccentric and visionary, Emperor Norton.
One of the Campaign's earliest research projects established that, according to the best-available evidence, Emperor Norton's birth date is 4 February 1818.
