- "... side by side with a portrait of Marianne Moore, seen first ''with her bright red hair / in braids wound twice around her head, / as long as that. She's the same age as my mother.' ' https://archive.nytimes.com/…/03/revi…/970803.03tillint.html

- "I had never seen a picture of Miss Moore; all I knew was that she had red hair and usually wore a wide-brimmed hat."  https://www.brainpickings.org/…/elizabeth-bishop-efforts-o…/

- "Marianne a stick of a woman, fence rail with a magnificent head of red hair..."  https://books.google.it/books…
