Sy Scholfield quotes him in "My Life in Art‎" by Ludwig Bemelmans (New York: Harper & Brothers, 1958), p. 39: "did I have my birth certificate with me? I said: 'No, I'm not even sure when I was born. It says in my passport April 27, 1898, but my mother said it was at 3 A.M., the last day of April.'"
