Page Name Change[edit]

The page is currently named Joseph Dunn (revolutionary) to disambiguate it from other Joseph Dunns, like Joseph Dunn the journalist, and Joseph Dunn the shark victim. I'm proposing that the name of this page should be changed to Joseph Dunn (Preston gaslighting pioneer). The reasons I'm suggesting this change are: 1. Dunn was not a revolutionary in a political sense 2. His introduction of gas lighting to Preston could just as accurately be described as 'pioneering in the field of gas' as a 'revolution'. 3. The name links Dunn to Preston, and to the field of gaslighting, making it much more likely that those seeking this particular Joseph Dunn will find him quickly and easily.
