Untitled[edit]

This entire article has been plagiarized from http://www.achievement.org/autodoc/page/coo0bio-1

Anon[edit]

The first thing mentioned about him does not need to be his membership in a college fraternity, especially when he is credited with the first implantation of an artificial heart.

copyvio[edit]

The anonymous commenter above is correct.

From http://www.achievement.org/autodoc/page/coo0bio-1. Though the article has been somewhat rewritten, the very first revision is a clear copy vio -- every sentence in the original revision [1] comes from [2]. Archive.org shows that page could not have been copied from Wikipedia, since it was online in 1998 [3]. The article needs to be rewritten and the copyvio revisions cleared from the page history. --Tabor 03:34, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Bankruptcy[edit]

I added that Cooley declared bankruptcy in 1988. I am surprised nobody mentioned it. I provided a reference to prove it is true, not wiki-vandalism. Chergles (talk) 18:18, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Anon[edit]

The entire article is highly unusual in its style. It reads more like a collection of bullet points related to Cooley than as a biography. I submitted a revised version of the section about his life, but it was almost instantaneously reverted to the previous version. Can anyone walk me through why and what I can do to update it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.147.26.1 (talk) 21:00, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

I had pleasure of working with Dr.Denton Cooley between 1981 - 1982.He is tall handsome and magnanimous man of great personality and charm.His technical achievements are supporb and as a human being he is humble and down to earth towards his even most junior doctors. His institution has performed many firsts in field of cardiovascula procedures.I assisted him as he performed second artificial heart procedure well recognised by press around the world.This one man is my daily inspiration for his simplicity,love for fellow humanbeings and selfless services to human race
