Source Notes

LMR quotes Francis E. Leupp, "George Westinghouse," 1919, p.8. "He came at twenty minutes past eleven [AM]". (Same in Sabian Symbols No.958. Biography: H.G. Garbedian, "George Westinghouse," 1943, describes on p.6 that his dad came home from work when a neighbor met him to announce that he had a new baby boy, his 7th child.")

As Wayne Turner pointed out, it is likely that local apparent time (LAT) was still used, which he corrects to 11:08 am LMT.
