Merge discussion[edit]

I propose that this page be merged to both Chinook (dog) and Byrd Antarctic Expedition#First Antarctic expedition. I don't believe that Arthur is notable enough to require his own article - even the article on the expedition was merged with Byrd's biography. --TKK bark ! 23:14, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

I disagree with the argument that this page be merged to both Chinook (dog) and Byrd Antarctic Expedition#First Antarctic expedition. I propose, for reference reasons, that articles referencing individuals, regardless of how modest thier biographies, should be kept editorially intact, and separate from articles regarding work or research they MAY have contributed to. If anything go read up on this fellow offline, and help by expanding this article... -- 9:27 , 28 January 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Morningstar805 (talkcontribs)

I agree with the second comment - thee is a lot of interst in the history of Antarctic exploration and Walden sounds like an interesting character who deserves his own entry even if brief. Actually I think the Byrd expeditions deserve much more coverage on wikipedia than they currently have.--Jeremy Young (talk) 11:32, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

I also disagree with the merge. It would be good to expand Waldens bio. TransControl (talk) 08:04, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
