Source Notes

From Jean Van Leeuwen in Something About the Author Autobiography Series, Volume 8, edited by Joyce Nakamura (Gale, 1989), page 318: "I arrived bright and early on the morning of December 26, 1937, not only a Sunday morning but right in the middle of the Christmas season as well. By this time my parents had moved to Rutherford, New Jersey, a suburb of New York City..." A time of 6 AM is speculative.
