Camelia Moldovan quotes biography by Nancy Milford, "Savage Beauty," 2001, for a birth time of 'a few minutes after 6 am' and is quite specific about the circumstances. She lives, I believe, in New York, and could be contacted as to what her source was. Her book is well documented, and she has spoken to Millay's surviving sister."
(Formerly, Robert Jansky quoted, in 1980, "biography with approximate time of 11:00 AM." LMR cannot locate biog.)
