Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes birth records. The handwritten time on the original record [1] clearly states "AM" on 25 November but the numeral is indistinct, seems to be "12" which is consistent with a birth time of midnight between 24th and 25th, considering that the amendment filed by his mother states his birth date as the 24th [2].
