  1. 1.0 1.1 Asimov, Isaac. In Memory Yet Green. The date of my birth, as I celebrate it, was January 2, 1920. It could not have been later than that. It might, however, have been earlier. Allowing for the uncertainties of the times, of the lack of records, of the Jewish and Julian calendars, it might have been as early as October 4, 1919. There is, however, no way of finding out. My parents were always uncertain and it really doesn't matter. I celebrate January 2, 1920, so let it be. 
  2. Pronunciation note: In the humorous poem "The Prime of Life" published in the anthology The Bicentennial Man and Other Stories, Asimov rhymes his name thusly: "Why, mazel tov, it's Asimov". In his comments tae the poem, Asimov wrote that oreeginally it was "Why, stars above, it's Asimov", an when someone suggestit tae uise "mazel tov" instead, Asimov acceptit this as a signeeficant improvement.
