Wikiproject WikiProject Fife[edit]

A WikiProject Fife has been proposed, which would cover all Fife-related articles such as places, famous people, museums, football and rugby clubs and churches to name a few. Examples would be: Kirkcaldy, Andrew Carnegie, Adam Smith, Dunfermline Abbey, Dunfermline Athletic, The Old Course and Kirkcaldy Museum and Art Gallery. This could also help support articles that really do need a lot of work while keeping general maintenance. Examples would be: Methil, Dunfermline, Cupar and a lot of the smaller towns such as Kennoway and Lower Largo. Please see the discussion at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Council/Proposals#Wikiproject_WikiProject_Fife. Jonathan Oldenbuck (talk) 10:08, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

To do[edit]

Although already long, this article doesn't mention his drawings or watercolours in any great depth (well, no mention of watercolours at all). Given that the Scottish National Galleries squeezed in an exhibition then it must surely be added. I'll add it to my to do list. Expected date of completion: 2010!

Another country house[edit]

Ugbrooke, Devon [1] Robert Adam was commissioned to remodel the house around the time Capability Brown was landscaping the park. Outstanding Adam features remain, including the Chapel and Library wing. 151.170.240.10 (talk) 08:51, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

MP for which party? or Ind?[edit]

I have searched for a WP:RS identifying his political party, but have failed to find one. However, it seems that all the Adams tended to be unaligned, so I have added Cat:Independent MPs (UK). If this is incorrect, please add a WP:RS, and adjust the cat. --Mais oui! (talk) 07:08, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
