Source Notes

Sy Scholfield cites a letter from Guthrie senior to his son, dated 13 January 1940, as transcribed in Jackson J. Benson, "Under the Big Sky: A Biography of A. B. Guthrie Jr." (University of Nebraska Press, 2009), pp. 68-69: "Dear Buddie, It is seven o'clock, p.m. of your birthday. . . . I recall quite vividly still the circumstances surrounding your birth--in a duplex house in Bedford . . . It was early in the morning, around one o'clock when you put in your appearance."
