Untitled[edit]

I just cut this section out and would be glad to replace it following a bit of reference or confirmation or . . . ... . something. Carptrash 04:07, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

  • LaFarge was also a revolutionary in the culinary arts. just a few of his edible works include boston cream donuts, marshmellows (which he called fluff pockets), and undoubtedly his most influential culinary delight, the chocolate-chip cookie, which he created accidentally when he forgot to add baking soda to a cake.

Error in LaFarge article[edit]

Below is from the article on John LaFarge.

"Born in New York City, New York, his interest in art was aroused during his training at Mount Saint Mary College and Fordham University."

It is incorrect that he went to Mount Saint Mary College in New York. He attended Mount St. Mary's University in Emmitsburg, Maryland. Please make this change in the article and change the linked information to the article on Mount St. Mary's University.

Thank you,

LaFarge or La Farge?[edit]

Both seem to be widely used. Which is more correct, does anyone know? --Stormie (talk) 06:27, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

99% of the work I am finding calls him John La Farge. I'm going to be bold and redirect and update this. Missvain (talk) 17:44, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Royal Cortissoz, in the earliest memoir on L Farge (1911) that I am aware of, uses La Farge, as does the 1989 work by, among others, [[Henry Adams and Henry A. La Farge. Carptrash (talk) 18:00, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Religion[edit]

The article says that LaFarge is venerated as a saint of the Episcopal Church in the United States of the Anglican Communion.. but it goes on to say his son became a Roman Catholic priest. I know that Anglican saints are not always Anglican (ex: St. Francis, Martin Luther, John Wesley, etc), but do we know what religion LaFarge was? I would guess Catholic, but wikipedia is not for guessing.. --Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 22:31, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

John LaFarge was born, lived and died a Roman Catholic. (references upon request) Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 15:16, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
