On[edit]

On 18 and 19 February 2009 I researched the outline of this article on the basis of twenty three primary source references. I have now asked ukxpat to link up the refs in Wiki fashion and generally look over the article prior to full publication on Wiki. Wfm495 (talk) 16:24, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Nigel (ukexpat) for look over/copy edit - good work. Wfm495 (talk) 19:51, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Will, excellent detective work on the parentage stuff. You convinced me! I will work on the refs soon when I have a little more time - it is a little complicated and I want to get it right. As soon as that's done, I will add an ibox etc and we can move it to mainspace. – ukexpat (talk) 20:45, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Nigel! Wfm495 (talk) 09:57, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Could the second sentance under "Early life" be a FOOTNOTE to avoid clumsy brackets? Wfm495 (talk) 10:39, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Good work Nigel. I think it is ready to publish openly on Wiki - would you please action that for me? Thanks, Will Wfm495 (talk) 17:47, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Nigel, the intro is now much stronger, Wfm495 (talk) 21:45, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

    • I am obviously very pleased about the B rating from Mil Hist, BUT I do agree that it needs to have experts in legal and medical history to beef up those aspects of Dr Ordronaux's CV. Thanks again Nigel for all your help, Wfm495 (talk) 17:06, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

ORPHAN LISTING[edit]

Thanks Nigel. I also think that this misses the point because Dr O is very clearly very well known, since almost all of his books are online, and his books can be found on bookselling sites at up to £3,000 each. So there will be lots of people looking him up in Wiki direct from google and via Wiki's engine. Wfm495 (talk) 15:57, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

I added links to a few of the alumni and faculty lists of the institutions with which he was associated. Orphan tag removed. – ukexpat (talk) 18:31, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Columbia Law Award[edit]

There's an award at Columbia Law for performance named after him. I think there are similar awards and scholarships at a few other law schools, like George Washington. Could somebody add this information to the article please? 96.241.3.231 (talk) 19:39, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Do you have a reliable source for that? – ukexpat (talk) 19:52, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
