Source Notes

LMR quotes a handwritten list of data by Andre Barbault in hand that gives "between 9 and 11 PM from his obit in the NY Times 1915. Same in SS No.5.

Sy Scholfield cites same data from father's diary quoted in "Charles Francis Adams, 1835-1915: An Autobiography" by Charles Francis Adams and Henry Cabot Lodge (Russell & Russell, 1968), p. 3: "owing to the fact of my father's keeping a diary, I can fix the exact hour of my birth as definitely as did either Falstaff or Montaigne. I came into this world in a house on Hancock Avenue [in Boston], . . . between nine and eleven p.m. of the 27th of May, 1835."
