Source Notes

A source who wishes to remain anonymous quotes Ferguson's autobiography, ""American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventure of an Unlikely Patriot, " writing "on page 14 he gives his birth data. "I was born at 6:10 a.m. on May 17, 1962, in Stobhill Hospital in Springburn, at the northern end of Glasgow."

Sy Scholfield reports on 21 March 2013 an email from Caroline Gerard, that she inspected the birth record personally and deciphered it as 6.10 pm, instead of am. She is quoted as saying it was difficult to read, but comparison with other entries by the same registrar removed any remaining doubt. In agreement with Scholfield, we changed Rodden Rating to AA.
