Indexer Notes

Du Bois writer credit identification by David Porta, 2021, applying The Barrier Axiom, and invoking supporting evidence from the published Du Bois account books which state that Du Bois was subsequently paid for a 48 page Raggedy Ann One-Shot script later that year in the entry (page 67) which states, "Raggedy Ann. 48p. For one-shot. Paid Oct. 9, 1943."
