- A number of histories of Dudley Leavitt say that the almanac publisher was self-educated, having never received more than three months of formal schooling. But a check of the records of Phillips Exeter Academy shows that a 'Dudley Leavitt' graduated from the Academy in 1790. It is possible that this is another Dudley Leavitt, as the Leavitt family were descendants of Moses Leavitt and Dorothy Dudley, the daughter of Exeter's Rev. Samuel Dudley, son of Governor توماس دادلي, and Dudley became a Leavitt family name. But this is unlikely, and the Exeter graduate is probably the same Dudley Leavitt who compiled the almanacs, as the dates match for his appropriate age. Nor do the dates match for أبرشانيون minister Dudley Leavitt, born at إيكستر, and for whom Leavitt Street in سالم, is named. Rev. Leavitt was born in 1720 and died in 1762, before the Academy was founded. Attorney Charles H. Bell in his book A Handbook of Exeter, New Hampshire, states flatly that the almanac maker was a graduate of the Academy.
- Leavitt continued to use the spelling of 'Almanack' with a 'k' until at least 1850.
