Despite some serious sleepiness, I toughed it out until midnight last night when the Kindle version of Barack Obama: The Story was published. Reports were that the author, David Maraniss, was going to disclose information about a doctor who remembered the Obama birth.
It turns out that the doctor was Dr. Rodney T. West, a physician and hospital administrator in Hawaii, about whom I have written several articles. Maraniss recounts a conversation between Barbara Czurles (later Nelson) and Dr. West where West said that the unusual thing that happened that week was “Stanley had a baby” (obviously referring to the President’s mother Stanley Ann Dunham).
Someone looking for an FBI investigation saturating Honolulu in 1961 will not find it in this book, but it is fairly detailed and sources are footnoted.
