The question arises because I have been reading the first chapter of Dworkin’s last book, Religion without God, and there is a curious conflict of authorities, with many saying that he was born in Worcester, Mass., where I lived for many years.

That he was born in Worcester: NNDB, The Guardian, The Washington Post, The Encyclopedia Britannica, The Library of Congress, IMDb

That he was born in Providence, R.I.: Wikipedia, The New York Times, The Telegraph, NYU, Library of Congress
