Samuel Campbell and some issues[edit]

I note in the military/politics and other sections several lines saying "several people named such-and-so Campbell", it and it has me wondering if all of those are in those sections....to put it another way, I'm uncertain whether the section headings here are useful at all and maybe the list should be purely alphabetical. That being said, I've just found out by accident there are other Samuel Campbells than Samuel Campbell, currently an article on an American politician, and Samuel Campbell (doctor), a Royal Navy doctor and indirectly the namesake of Campbell River, British Columbia. I found this out by searching for the former, to add a hatnote, and mis-spelling it and winding up at a Wikipedia search page for "Samuel Campbell], which has more entries than I'd care to make a dabpage for at this point in the day; and I'd venture the American politician should be bumped to Samuel Campbell (American politician) and that title should become a dab page......Skookum1 (talk) 16:15, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

I agree in regards to Samuel Campbell, and have opened a discussion about this at Talk:Samuel Campbell. Rejectwater (talk) 11:04, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
