Why this article was resubmitted[edit]

This biographical article has been resubmitted because it is my belief that Wikipedia exists not to carry articles only about the famous, but to provide verifiable information on topics that people may have questions about. Before nominating this article for deletion because Blaesing's ties to Warren G. Harding have never been accepted by his heirs, or verfied by DNA or legal action, it is important to note that the belief that Harding fathered Blaesing is pervasive in the American public mind. Therefore, Wikipedia should be place where people can turn to get reliable information on the topic. Stu 15:45, 2 October 2005 (UTC)

Yes, the material seems to me appropriate to include in Wikipedia. It provided an answer to this question on the humanities reference desk. Wareh 17:05, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

'The Strange Death of President Harding'[edit]

You name Dr. Robert H. Ferrell as the author of 'The Strange Death of President Harding'. That book was supposed to have been written by Gaston Means, but possibly ghosted by Mae Dixon Thacker. Did Ferrell write another book of the same title? Valetude (talk) 10:33, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

I now see that Ferrell's book is titled '...deaths', not 'death'. Is that a separate book? Awfully easy to mistake. Valetude (talk) 17:08, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

This article is mostly gossip about an ordinary person[edit]

Why is she named "Harding" when her mother did not marry her father? The article says the birth certificate was wrong, when it was actually correct - she was an illegitimate child so the doctor or clerk used the mother's name. There is no source shown stating that she "used" her father's famous name. While the article lists four sources, none of them are used on the middle section about the woman's life. And, of course, this woman achieved nothing notable and attempted nothing notable, so there is no reason for her to have a Wikipedia article.Browntable (talk) 20:26, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
