Why the emphasis on the architect Kahn, if the journalist Kahn satisfies notability (WP:N) in his own right? SalineBrain (talk) 11:22, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
"Albert Kahn, Inc. completed more than one thousand commissions for Ford Motor Company, and emerged as the world's leading industrial architecture firm prior to World War II. Albert E. Kahn's father, Moritz, was senior engineer in the firm."
The dates here are a little vague. What exactly was he doing after the war broke out, but before the Soviet entry into the war? Were there any anti fascist activities in that period? 22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:58, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Eastern European books of the cold war era is an interesting phenomenon. They often modified the text of even classics! However, now I have to say that I have a book of Albert E. Kahn, Hungarian title "A besúgó" from 1960 and 1962 2nd ed., that says it's the translation of his text "Notes on a national scandal". It might have been a manuscript then, as the English final version only went out in the 80's. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:16, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
The lede is currently as follows:
Albert Eugene Kahn (May 11, 1912 – September 15, 1979) was an American journalist, photographer, author and nephew of modernist industrial architect Albert Kahn. Albert E. Kahn's father, Moritz Kahn, was senior engineer in the firm who set up the Kahn brothers Soviet Union operation in conjunction with Gosproekstroi. He was the American Labor Party candidate in the 1948 elections for New York's 25th congressional district.
Who is the "he" in the last sentence? As written, the nearest antecedent is Moritz Kahn. If Moritz Kahn was the American Labor Party candidate, this fact doesn't belong in the lede of Albert Kahn's article. If Albert Kahn was the American Labor Party candidate, then the lede should be re-written and the fact included in the main body of the article. Andrew Jameson (talk) 14:33, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
