I can, alas, not answer your question since I did not find the exact
date anywhere yet. All I found out is that André Perugia died in
November 1977 in Cannes, France. Maybe one of my colleagues will be
more successful.

It is possible that you have found information on the correct
individual.  Can you provide me with your source for confirmation?

Yes, I can. The month of André Perugia's death is mentioned in the
article "The World at his Feet; Patrick Cox's new Position at Charles
Jourdan allows him to look back and step forward - all at the same
time", published on 28 July 2003 in  "Footwear News". In that article
(unfortunately only available through fee-based subscription), the
following is said:

"When Perugia passed away in November 1977, he bequeathed his
extensive footwear collection to Charles Jourdan. Perugia is obviously
one of Cox's favorite shoe designers."

The fact that famous shoe designer André Perugia died in Cannes is
mentioned in "Dictionnaire Historique et Biographique du Comtÿ de
Nice", Fiche N° 834:

"PERUGIA André (Nice, 1893 - Cannes, 1977)	
André Pérugia, fils d'un bottier d'origine toscane, est un des grands
créateurs de chaussures de l'entre-deux-guerres."

Will this be useful? Please let me know.

Just a quick question.

How can you rate an answer with 3 stars when you have stated that you
consider the question answered or as good as it can be answered?

I'm interested to know as I have seen questioners mention that the
answer was excellent on a few questions and then only give three
stars. I am just wondering why.

The problem is that there is no scale for rating a question.  Some
questioners will only give 4 or 5 stars only if they are wowwed by the
answer and 3 stars to a typical correct answer.  While other
questioners will give 4 or 5 stars to any correct answer and 3 or less
stars to a "sub-par" answer.  It's all relative but unfortunately it's
not consistant and hurts the researchers in the process.  Although I
doubt Scriptor-ga's rating wil be affected at all since he has many
stellar answers and ratings.
