FYI: I am a student at Towson University editing this page for my ENGL416 Editing class. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Skimm0301 (talkcontribs) 01:31, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi Kimberly,

I just wanted to say that yours is a job well done! I made a few grammatical corrections on your page. I also have a couple of recommendations. A particular sentence stated that, "he became a professor at ....in 1891; the principal of....in (1898) and a professor of ....in (1901)." I thought the sentence might "look" better if you took out the parenthesis for 1898 and 1901 for consistency (there was no parenthesis around 1891), It was also stated that "he wrote a large number of publications of various types." How do you like: "He also wrote numerous publications of various types"? I think the two "ofs" may be unneccessary. Hope this helps!

Great page! Thanks for the feedback on mine. I would suggest seeing if there is any more information about your editor's works. Also, how do you do the carrot things for references? Jola066 (talk) 18:08, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
