Francis Harry Compton Crick[edit]

@Unknown Voice Actor: Please provide a citation for the changes you just made to the Francis Crick page changing his full name from Francis Harry Compton Crick to Francis Harold Compton Crick. I can find no such reference myself. Indeed, everything that I have found, including the very first reference on the page which is for his name in the lede, says that his name is Francis Harry Compton Crick. The only variation I have found is Francis H. C. Crick which is no help. At this point, it looks to me like your changes amount to WP:OR which should be reverted on the basis of WP:NOR. In the spirit of WP:AGF I am asking you for a citation rather than just reverting the changes out of hand. Shortsword (talk) 17:21, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

Having not received any kind of answer from @Unknown Voice Actor: for the question posed above, I have reverted the edits Unknown Voice Actor made changing Francies Harry Compton Crick's full name. Shortsword (talk) 03:19, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Personal communication as source[edit]

I removed the reference below from the '1951–1953: DNA structure' section. Personal communications can't be used as sources since they aren't reliable and can't be confirmed independently.
