Source Notes

Steinbrecher quotes the Armond Rampersad biography, 1986, for "near midnight."

LMR quotes "The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes," Arnold Rampersad, editor and David Roessel, associate editor, Alfred A. Knopf, publisher, 1994. The chronology, pp.8 to 20, would serve as an excellent aid to rectification but it contains no reference or allusion to a time of birth. On p.8, it reads, "1902 Born James Langston Hughes, February 1, Joplin, Missouri, to James Nathaniel Hughes, who was a stenographer with a mining company, and Carrie Mercer Langston Hughes, who wrote verse and acted in amateur theatricals."
