Celendrical savants

A colleague of mine asked if I knew of any articles related to calendrical savants. I ran a quick search of the IAP Reference Database and located the following articles. I thought, given that I took the time to do the work, that I would share this information with nterested readers who may find if of value. Links to most of the articles are provided below (embedded in the article reference).
