Sy Scholfield quotes from Barry Bingham: A Man of His Word by Barry Bingham (University Press of Kentucky, 2015), p. 20: "I was born right here in Louisville, Kentucky, on February 10, 1906. It was early on one frosty morning, a very inconvenient time, I expect, for a baby to be born." A birth time of 3 AM is speculative.
