April 2014[edit]

Weik article and Florida Bicentennial Trail[edit]

I have been working on a couple of articles over in the Geography section, and I have encountered a couple of sources that I would like to use, but I do not have access to.

1.) I found that the article "The Role of Ethnogenesis and Organization in the Development of African-American Settlements: an African Seminole Model" by Dr. Terrance M. Weik, which was published in the International Journal of Historical Archaelogy June 2009 edition (Vol. 13, No. 2), contained information about the area that I have been editing. I registered with JSTOR's Register & Read program, but the article is not accessible with my type of account. I am an alumna of a college, but I am not a member of the alumni association.

2.) I came across a few excerpts from the Tampa Tribune article "Sumpter Countians Ambush State on Bicentennial Trail" (published February 16, 1976) on the SeminoleWar blog. I would like to access the article. (Note: Sumpter also could be spelled "Sumter" in the article's title as "Sumter" is the correct spelling of the county's name.)

Could I please have access to these two? SciGal (talk) 17:36, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Guy from Tampa here. This is from memory so it may be wrong, but it's my understanding that the Trib is only available electronically back to the 1990s, and to go back further would require microfilm. However, the nearby St. Pete Times is available on Google News back to the 19th century, so you might find a similar article there. Gamaliel (talk) 18:15, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion. I wasn't able to find the exact article, but I was able to find an article from the Ocala Star-Banner people asking the Sumter County commissioners about cleaning Dade Battlefield in 1976 and a St. Pete Times article about the fight over the removal of a fence at the park. (Pardon the informal title for the park; I know people from Sumter County, and that is one of two ways I have heard residents refer to the park.) SciGal (talk) 20:05, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

May I ask a question? Within the last two weeks, I found a copy of the Weik's article on Scribd. Can I use that? SciGal (talk) 16:49, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Okay, I noted earlier this week that it was a preview and not the full article. SciGal (talk) 16:15, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
Personally, I would like to have the full article, please. SciGal (talk) 16:33, 3 June 2014 (UTC)


I'd be very grateful if someone would consult the following in connection with the article for Reculver:

  • Ward, D.J. (1978), The lower London Tertiary (Palaeocene) succession of Herne Bay, Kent, H.M.S.O, ISBN 978-0-11-884052-1

It's only 12 pages long I believe, so I think any scanning or photocopying of multiple pages might be an infringement of copyright...? If so, I just need page numbers to support the statements referenced "[115]" in the following quotation from the article: the statements concern a) the Thanet Sand Formation forming the base of cliffs in the Reculver and Herne Bay area, and b) the highest cliffs there having a cap of London Clay.

Nearby Herne Bay is the type location for the Thanet Sand Formation, a fine-grained sand that can be clayey and glauconitic and is of Thanetian (late Paleocene) age.[114] It rests unconformably on the Chalk Group[114] and forms the base of the cliffs in the Reculver and Herne Bay area.[115] Above the Thanet Sand are the Upnor Formation, a medium sandstone,[116] and the sandy clays of the Harwich Formation at the Paleocene/Eocene boundary.[117] The highest cliffs, rising to a maximum height of about 115 feet (35 m) to the west of Reculver,[118] have a cap of London Clay,[115] a fine silty clay of Eocene age.[119]

Another editor kindly wrote and referenced that section, I just don't have the page numbers for Ward 1978. Thanks for your time. Nortonius (talk) 17:57, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Source review from Lexis Nexis and ProQuest[edit]

I use a few Lexis Nexis and ProQuest citations in Deathrow (video game), which is up at FAC: Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Deathrow (video game)/archive1. Can someone with access do a quick review that the prose accurately reflects those sources? (Newyorkadam?) czar  04:13, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

@Czar: Out of the two ProQuest sources, I have access to one, "The Grand Old Game vs. Down-and-Dirty Combat". I can't find the other in my search but I'll keep trying. I'll sourcecheck the one I found with the article later. -Newyorkadam (talk) 12:00, 1 May 2014 (UTC)Newyorkadam
Czar Why don't you just save copies of the two sources as PDFs, stick them in a dropbox, and link to them at the FAC? That's certainly easier on the reviewers. Sven Manguard Wha? 21:28, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Architecture thesis request[edit]

I'm looking for a copy of a thesis that is at the University of Vermont. It is "Blueprints for progress : General Houses, Inc., and the modern prefabricated house, 1932-40 / by Douglas K. Royalty."Link I'm working on Howard T. Fisher and I would like to do an article on General Houses, Inc. I first became aware of Royalty's work through the involvement to restore the House at 130 Mohegan Avenue - which is a GA of mine. Having this source could be quite helpful in connecting the dots to other sources about a "Howard T. Fisher", a Harvard professor. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 20:05, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately this doesn't appear to be in the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses database and the only library in Worldcat to own a physical copy is the University of Vermont. Gamaliel (talk) 17:15, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

On gbooks, I get no preview. Can a brother please send or check whatever is on page 37, and how it relates to, Magdala, Tiberias, Cana and any road between them (as per Josephus)? --trespassers william (talk) 22:40, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

I'm not 100% clear on what you're requesting – might it be the following quotation? "Cana was a strategically vital center on the Roman road from Ptolemais (Akko) on the Mediterranean to Magdala on the Sea of Galilee (Josephus Life 16 §86)." That seems to be the only mention of a road between those settlements, but there's more in-depth discussion of the them and of Tiberias on pages 36–8. I would upload a PDF but I'm not clear on the legal acceptability or technical feasibility of doing so from Google Books. Let me know if that's any use or what else you're looking for. – Arms & Hearts (talk) 10:52, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. This page is a ref about the road at Al-Majdal:[4] but I just can't see how the Josephus cite [5] supports it. See User talk:Tiamut#Al-Majdal / Cana. Does the dictionary give a clearer picture?. PS DownThemAll make a lot of things more feasible. trespassers william (talk) 14:49, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Swazi phonology[edit]

At Swazi language, the phonology section was both incomplete and, according to basic descriptions of the language in other sources, incorrect. I deleted the table, and added a bit of info I could see in Taljaard et al. (1991) Handbook of SiSwati at GBooks. Is anyone here able to access the sound-inventory section of that book? Swazi is a national language, so it would be nice to have at least some of the basics. — kwami (talk) 01:55, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Italian source needs verifying[edit]

Hi, I am working on improving the Italian invasion of France article. An editor (who is quickly developing a bad reputation) has claimed that the below source states the following "Italy's limited incursion into south-eastern France had been, despite initial setbacks, relatively successful from a military, strategic and political point of view." (pulled from the article, so not a direct quote although considering some of this editors comments it maybe).

Source: Zamagni, V (ed), Come Pedere la Pace e Vincere la Guerra, Il Mulino, Bologna, 1997

I do not have access to this source and from what I have found online, using google translate, the intro states that the book is an economic history of the 1940s and 1950s with six essays from six different economic historians. The editor has refused to provide any additional information, and considering the editors problems and the fact that the majority of historians disagree with what the source apparently states, this information needs to be verified.

The editor claims that the above information is on page 53. If anyone has access to this source, can they please clarify:

  • If the above is actually stated on page 53
  • If so, why (what is the greater context)?
  • If so, which of the six historians actually makes this claim

Regards, --EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 21:28, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Looks like the title was wrong, if the reference is to

Vera Zamagni Come perdere la guerra e vincere la pace : l'economia italiana tra guerra e dopoguerra : 1938-1947 Bologna : Il mulino (1997) OCLC 36728937

Thank you for clarifying the title of the source in question.EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 17:59, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Proquest article request[edit]

Looking for this article from the Hartford Courant for Willie Hoppe, available from Proquest, for verification purposes and possibly expansion. What it's cited for currently sounds highly dubious to me considering he was not predominantly a pocket billiards player at all.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 04:21, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

The source says: "He probably was the only billiard player ever to give an exhibition in the White House." No reference to pocket billiards. John M Baker (talk) 21:23, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
@John M Baker: Ah, thanks much. Shows how careful you must be in your assumptions to not engage in original research. Billiards? Yes. Pocket billiards? Highly unlikely – but the person who sourced this probably doesn't know the difference. At least "probably" was kept in, which was a good hedge in the source, but wrong because he was not the only billiards player to give an exhibition at the white house, and if I remember, Ralph Greenleaf did as well.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 22:42, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Reference work articles on Soka Gakkai[edit]

This is basically a request for any articles/pieces from what might be called "reference works" broadly defined on the topic of Soka Gakkai. By which I mean about SG itself, not about any particular members, leaders, etc. Such articles available to anyone who has one or more of the databank subscriptions in particular would be most welcome. There seems to be some significant problems of trying to shoehorn to much information into too few articles on the subject as is, and knowing what sort of spinout articles are reasonable and meet notability requirements would be extremely useful.

News archive search requested and possibly Lexis/Westlaw for Minnesota Fats article[edit]

Google News Archive being useless, lo now these many, many months, is really painful. Regarding Minnesota Fats, a source I've come across writes that Wanderone actually sued Tevis and possibly Twentieth Century Fox, or vice versa, whereas most sources just state that a lawsuit was threatened. It says the "court battle made front page news across the nation for several weeks in 1962". I want the skinny on this lawsuit, if it existed, for the article. A or similar search would be great, maybe pegging 1962 and using tevis wanderone as the search grist; a Lexis/Westlaw search would be great as well, especially if there's an opinion (though even if there was a lawsuit, it's not unlikely it never made it to the appellate level).--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 23:13, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

@Fuhghettaboutit: I'm skeptical that there was a lawsuit brought by Rudolf or Rudolph Wanderone (our article and your source say "Rudolf," but the newspaper articles all seem to say "Rudolph"), the man who claimed that the fictional character "Minnesota Fats" was based on him. There was nothing relevant on Westlaw, although I wouldn't necessarily expect there to be even if a suit had been filed. More to the point, searches of ProQuest Historical Newspapers and Newspaper Archive found a few articles, in 1961, 1962, and 1964, that referred to a suit brought by Wanderone, but these are just passing references, obviously based on statements by Wanderone and lacking basic information such as the court and the name of his lawyer. A 1966 article, written under the assumption that Wanderone was the original Minnesota Fats, said, "When Gleason came out as Minnesota Fats, the genuine article cried foul and there was talk of law suits, but there also was a lot of free publicity and now things couldn't be better." Clifton Terry, Minnesota Fats, Chicago Tribune (Jan. 2, 1966). That sounds to me like the suit never got past the talking stage. In any case, it's obviously untrue that the court battle made front page news across the nation in 1962. If you want the articles, email me and I'll reply with PDFs.

Anyway, thanks for the searches! You've confirmed my suspicion that the outlier source got it wrong and that it was just threatened. I would have loved to see that lawsuit if it had been brought.

Each of the following references a nuthatch Sitta subspecies, which I have placed before the reference. In each case, I need the article title (in Cyrillic for the Russian ones if possible, with a translation), and a link to the article if one exists.

"The fortress enclosed an area of almost 11 acres (45,000 m2). It was 860' long and 470' wide, and defended by a steep slope to the north and a moat 20' deep and rampart on the other three sides."

I know it's a lot, so if anybody is more comfortable with only giving a few at a time, that's fine. I thought I needed to write articles about books about my hometown, so after finishing the existing requests I want to write the ones about Houston before turning to other subjects --WhisperToMe (talk) 18:51, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

I've sent you an email. Please respond and and I'll send you some of these. Simon Burchell (talk) 10:31, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
I've just sent eight nine. All the best, Simon Burchell (talk) 10:53, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. I will begin writing the article. WhisperToMe (talk) 16:53, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
The fifth by mail.Next time please give at least the doi or better link to the pay walled resource--Shrike (talk)/WP:RX 04:42, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. The UH Database doesn't say the DOI, but I could google and look for the paywalled pages and include them if they are there WhisperToMe (talk) 09:33, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: I just emailed the Journal of Religious History and Diverse Issues reviews. If Shrike sent the Religious Studies Review piece, then you should have everything. John M Baker (talk) 18:27, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Hmong: History of a People (book reviews)[edit]

  • Downing, Bruce. "Hmong: History of a People" (Book Review) Journal of Refugee Studies, ISSN 0951-6328, 1989, Volume 2, Issue 3, p. 398.
  • Yates, C. L. "Asia & Oceania -- Hmong, history of a people by Keith Quincy." CHOICE, ISSN 0009-4978, 07/1996, Volume 33, Issue 11-12, p. 1848.

This is for User:WhisperToMe/Hmong: History of a People. This is very important because I want to use this article to show why writing articles on academic books systematically helps Wikipedia. It means people know what others think about the sources.

I am aware CHOICE has free trials but I do want to see if somebody can get an article from it first, so I don't use up a free trial. --WhisperToMe (talk) 04:43, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
