Recent Changes[edit]

For some reason, Deuce X Machina desires to use this entry as a platform to espouse the position of the FLLW Preservation Trust rather than rely on the actual facts. Deuce X Machina has no knowledge regarding the preceptions of a few volunteer docents. This is simply how he/she would like to characterize the situation. In fact, representatives of the Trust expressly stated in a meeting with the docents (at which the press was not premitted to attend) that the Trust was unwilling to commit itself to the full restoration of the Robie House, including furniture and textiles.

More importantly, Deuce X Machina restates the potentially defamatory statement of Joan Mercuri, the CEO of the Preservation Trust, that the docents were terminated by the Trust for violation of the Code of Ethics. This is the assertion made by the Trust with absolutely no explanation or prior notice to the volunteers regarding what they had done that was in violation of Code of Ethics. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 165.124.76.192 (talk) 19:28, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Current Status of Article[edit]

Vast improvements have been made to this article since 2007 when the banner at the top of the page was inserted. With the expanded text and inclusion of authorities, isn't it time that we took that banner down? 98.208.254.229 (talk) 22:06, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Indeed! --ELEKHHT 05:37, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Current Controversy[edit]

I've cited a new source and included mentions of other sources that provide legitimacy to the new content. There isn't any controversy and the museum has expanded hours and program offerings, so the "Current Controversy" section is no longer relevant. In fact, Kate Hawley, who is cited in the "Current Controversy" section, states in the June 3 edition of the Hyde Park Herald that "concerns about public access appear to be unfounded . . ." —Preceding unsigned comment added by TakeThisName (talkcontribs) 17:31, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

TakeThisName continues to remove the portion of the Robie House article entitled "Current Controversy"? This material is relevant to the Robie House page and is verified with citations to the Hyde Park Herald, the local newspaper in Hyde Park. 165.124.76.192 (talk) 14:10, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
