Source Notes

Luc de Marre quotes Wim Koppejan for B.R.: Debye, Peter Joseph William born on 24 March 1884 at 12:00 (noon, LMT) in Maasbracht, Netherlands.

Svi checked it online in the Municipal Archive of Maastricht, as Debye was not mentioned in the Dutch "Dierenriem" series of the Koppejans and all internet sources give Maastricht, not Maasbracht. Moreover, his real Dutch BC birthname was unlike the Americanised version given. Svi found the entry in the online municipal Archive of Maasstricht: 24 March 1884 at 12:00 (= 12:00 PM, or in Dutch "ten twaalf ure 's middags") as Petrus Josephus Wilhelmus Debije.
