Indy celebrated his 18th birthday in Petrograd one hundred years ago today--or did he?

Russia was still using the Julian calendar in 1917, so if he was celebrating his birthday on "July 1" in Petrograd, it was already July 14 in most of the rest of the world (including the United States, where he was born).
