Tone and facts[edit]

This is an odd article, seeming more for a family history than a general encyclopedia. Compton was wealthy and influential, but does not seem to have accomplished much. Many details could be edited out. Needs to be pared down more, although it has some insight into Maryland Democratic politics of those years.--Parkwells (talk) 18:34, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Narrative from MD Archives[edit]

Much of the narrative was originally copied verbatim from the Extended Biography at the Archives of Maryland.Parkwells (talk) 21:23, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
