Bud Fowler[edit]

I clarified the statement about Bud Fowler's season with Keokuk. He was not the "first African American" to play professional baseball for a white team, as had been written. See, for example, the wikipedia entry on Fleet Walker for an earlier example of a black player on an integrated professional team.

Joni Mitchell's first husband?[edit]

I presume that if this was the same Chuck Mitchell that was a folk singer and, for a short time in the 1960s, was married to Joni Mitchell, or it would say so. Wouldn't it be appropriate to have a disambiguation pointer at the top of the page saying "For the folk singer, see the article on Joni Mitchell"? 71.254.253.114 (talk) 10:07, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

We need to know whether or not the two Chucks were the same man before we make any changes of that nature. Nietzsche 2 (talk) 01:52, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

They are different because (1) The actor is dead. (2)I know Chuck Mitchell of Keokuk and he is not dead. (3) Here is his website and bio: https://www.mitchellsong.com/bio.php. (4)BTW, he was Joni Mitchell's only husband and she still bears his name. I have his email address if it is needed, but I don't wish to publish it here.

Recent Chuck Mitchell performance at Rand Park Pavilion in Keokuk. Pretty good for a deceased movie actor. http://www.dailygate.com/articles/2009/09/09/news/doc4aa7fc4675917470100200.txt WILLOBIE (talk) 15:21, 2 October 2009 (UTC) Joseph Chiaravalloti, Hamilton, IL, 62341
