Fact Check and Notes[edit]

Adopting C.H. Morse!

Details on changes:

  • Updated article for some factual errors and put in additional resources/citations.
  • C.H. Morse was not a founder of Winter Park, Florida (Winter Park Public Library lists him as a founding father but all other sources only list Chapman and Chase as the initial founders of the city as well as the ones who named the city).
  • Erased reference to Elizabeth Morse Genius Charitable Trust within article; it was founded by Morse's grandson, Richard M. Genius Jr., and was not relevant to the article as currently written. May add back in as article is expanded.
  • Morse not a co-founder of Rollins College; also, cannot find any citation for him being on the board of trustees (though it is possible due to his involvement in the community?).
  • Need to double check some of the references cited; the website used seems old?

Notes for future updates:

  • The relationship between Morse, E.T. Fairbanks & Co., and the company that would eventually be known as Fairbanks, Morse & Co. is not clear. Also need to clarify the difference, if there is one, between Fairbanks-Morse and Fairbanks, Morse & Co.
  • Expand section on Morse in Chicago, as well as Morse in Winter Park. Was an influential figure in both cities.
  • Will look for more sources outside of the web.

All the best, --Roving Ginger (talk) 20:28, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
