On Bellow’s birth certificate, the date of birth is listed as July 10, but subsequent biographical and reference works list his birth date as June 10, 1915. Lachine’s city hall burned down in the 1920s, and Bellow’s birth certificate was reconstructed from other documents. It is also possible that Bellow’s mother could have been going by the Jewish calendar; immigrants were habitually negligent about such details, and Jews were often unfamiliar with the Christian calendar.
Bellow told a reporter:‘My mother insisted that it was June, and I must acknowledge her claim".
Birth time unknown. Starkman rectified it to 10 June 1915 16.24.20 EST.
