Thomas Parker Sanborn[edit]

I can help. You're off to a good start. Are you aware of Wikisource? It's a sister project of Wikipedia which compiles public domain primary source documents (like poetry). It would be a good idea to set up a Wikisource "author page" for Sanborn. I can get it started for you if you like. --Midnightdreary (talk) 15:33, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Ah-ha! Perhaps I reply by going into the edit function... I appreciate your help with this project. Poked-around at Wikisource until my eyes glazed-over and would appreciate any assistance. I am the sort of person who dives-in and then reads the instructions, so a guiding-hand is nice to find.

Kathrynklos, you are invited to the Teahouse[edit]

Comments on Wikipedia_talk:Articles for creation/The Harvard Monthly[edit]

Hello, a few suggestions on your draft:

  • There are a ton of books on GoogleBooks that explore THM and its history. Your sourcing is kind of weak right now, but with just an hour or two of work you could really strengthen up your footnotes with strong citations to academic books, works of history, books on journalism's development, etc. We definitely need an article about the THM, so we might as well start it out strong.
  • Minor thing, but your image (presumably from GoogleBooks) has that highlighting on it. If you can go into that same book, undo the highlighting, and get a screencap of that it'd look cleaner.

Great start so far, just recommend you kick it up a notch so we can launch it with very little improvement needed. There's just so much good info out there about the mag, so plenty to work with. MatthewVanitas (talk) 20:04, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Thomas Wentworth Higginson, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Unitarian (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Photo of John Hall Wheelock[edit]

It's me again. To educate myself I have looked into this some more. Perhaps the photo wasn't in the book at all. Maybe it was provided to the newspaper for publicity purposes so the question would become did the Baltimore Sun (or anyone else) publish it or not. Also, he looks rather younger than 50 there so maybe it wasn't a recent photo. Could it have been published earlier? Perhaps it has never been published at all? As for the book, I've found out how to check – it is still in copyright.[1] I doubt you'll be able to prove the photo's copyright status.

However, I think you might be able to use the photograph under "fair use" provided you uploaded it to Wikipedia and not Commons. The allowance is at WP:NFCI, particularly item 10, "Pictures of deceased persons, in articles about that person, provided that ever obtaining a free close substitute is not reasonably likely". I now see the eBay image is watermarked so you'd have to buy the photo and scan it yourself (and risk it being deleted at Wikipedia if it was eventually decided it was not fair use). You'd need to be able to provide as much detail as possible by also scanning and uploading the back of the photo. The biggest stumbling block might be at WP:NFCCP item 4, "Previous publication. Non-free content must have been published or publicly displayed outside Wikipedia, by (or with permission from) the copyright holder". It'd be easier if you had an image that had definitely been legitimately published like this one which doesn't look as nice to me. You could ask in advance at WP:MCQ for advice. Thincat (talk) 21:10, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Thank you thank you thank you! I'll begin by asking for advice as you suggest and also looking for an image that might not be eventually deleted, and that won't cost me money to obtain. Not that I don't feel an attachment to this man. Amazing how this happens when one dives into researching a person. My Christmas present to myself is a volume of his poetry that I found while looking for his picture on eBay. Kathrynklos (talk) 21:32, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I developed an attachment for Sir Edward Peel after his article had been speedy deleted and I was determined to resurrect him! And this led to Big-game tunny fishing off Scarborough! I hadn't a clue about either subject. And Dog and Duck (tavern) emerged after a very acrimonious deletion discussion. Thincat (talk) 21:52, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
Haha! I tell people all the time that I have friends who died before I was born, and they teach me a lot... they lead me to things I never knew. I've been adding the names of the editorial staffs of The Harvard Monthly, which involves checking each name to see if the fellow has a biography I can link to. That's how I found Wheelock's to be in need of tweaking. It's been fascinating, overall, and I got some feedback the other day from someone who knew I was working on this, who said he hadn't known three of his favorite writers had worked on the Monthly, and he was happy to find some of their college writing. Similar to your discovery of the Dog and Duck, a friend of mine mentioned a house his parents nearly bought in Maine, and I found it in the Wikipedia and added a bit to that one after finding additional information. A fun new hobby. It fills my day and sometimes through the night! Kathrynklos (talk) 22:52, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
Interesting stuff, re Sir Edward! I also use the term "resurrecting" when telling people what I'm doing... I say I resurrect the dead... dust off dead people nobody knows, and learn amazing things in the process! Kathrynklos (talk) 00:15, 24 December 2013 (UTC)
