He spent only two months of his early life in school, receiving all of his education from his mother. Forced to help support her, Barnard took a job in a photography gallery when he was nine.

I see my lil' paragraph about E. S. Holden has been tagged for neutrality disputed. Probably a good thing - but what is the procedure here? Should I edit this to make it more neutral or leave it to be considered (I'm fairly new at this)? Lesonyrra 22:03, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

  • No particular procedure that I know of...just a way of flagging an issue and giving others a chance to discuss it and possibly make changes. I do not personally know anything about Barnard's apparent conflict with Holden, but the word "draconian" raises a POV red flag. I thought that your first version of the sentence was neutral, yet made the point that Holden probably was not an easy individual to work with. If some contemporary made the observation that Holden's style was "draconian," then put the word in quotation marks and cite the source. Otherwise -- and this is just my opinion -- go back to your first version (also preferably with a citation). - Cuppysfriend 23:47, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Okay. Thanks. I'll go back to the source (William Sheehan's Barnard bio) and check. I don't know that that exact word was used but (in memory at least) it's reasonably accurate description of the behavior described there. Lesonyrra 17:12, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

First recorded Trojan[edit]

I understand that in 1904 E.E.B. made the first known observation of a Trojan asteroid (the first discovery was by his friend Max Wolf in 1906). Only recently was his observation identified as Trojan.

See "The Earliest Observation of a Trojan" - Brian G Marsden. (talk) 20:46, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Possible contradiction[edit]

First section of this article states that Edward Emerson Barnard discovered Barnard's Star. But article about Barnard's_Star state that "...E. E. Barnard. He was not the first to observe the star". (talk) 07:47, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
