This is a very well written article, and well researched too. I only have two small suggestions for further improvement:

  • The second to last sentence of the first paragraph of the introduction ("In his early years [he] was criticized...but is warmly remembered by the institution") sounds a bit odd. I would change that to "...,but today he is warmly remembered" or "in his later years, he was warmly remembered." Or something along those lines.
  • There are a few titles, such as those of the magazines written about in the text, that could benefit from having a translation for those titles.

Happy editing! --Tea with toast (話) 00:28, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the review! I clarified the one point, but for newspapers / magazines I generally don't give a translation, as you generally can't tell much about the contents from the title alone (see Ruma Maida, for example) — Crisco 1492 (talk) 00:35, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
