Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from "David Galloway's A Family Album" in Dutch Quarterly Review of Anglo-American Letters (DQR., Volume 12), page 2:

"The author was born at 11:55 on the evening of May 5th, 1937, at the Baptist Memorial Hospital in the city of Memphis, the County of Shelby, the State of Tennessee. According to the certificate of birth (registration number 17243) the attending physician was Dr W.A. Ruch—presumably the same Dr Ruch who six years later removed the author's tonsils."
