Source Notes

Penfield Collection gives a spec time "based on his biography which states he was born between acts of his parent's medicine show." LMR can only find one biography, "My Wonderful World of Slapstick," by Keaton with C. Samuels, on which it states on p.20, "My birth in Pickway on October 4, 1895, was uneventful."
