Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from a news profile, "Townsend family lore has it that baby Brad, born on a New Year's morning, was the first infant brought into the world in Waco in 1962. 'Understand, I was born at 7:30 in the morning,' says Staff Writer Brad Townsend, about to celebrate his 36th birthday. 'If the story is true, that would make Waco a pretty sleepy place.'" ("Sports Day Memo," Dallas Morning News, Texas, 28 December 1997, page 2B.)
