Move to George Ohsawa[edit]

From what I understand, the "Georges" spelling was basically used while he was in France. In his English publications his name is spelled "George". His namesake foundation spells it "George". [1] Is there any good reason to use the French spelling here?

Also, the Google results seem to show more currency for the English spelling.

"george ohsawa" -wikipedia = 14700 hits
"georges ohsawa" -wikipedia = 10100 hits

It seems to me there is little question that "George" is correct in English. --Dforest 05:09, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

I decided to go ahead and boldly move this. --Dforest 05:15, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

74 or 72?[edit]

How so "Ohsawa died of a heart attack at the age of 74"? If George Ohsawa was born in November 1893 and died in April 1966, he was 72 and not 74 years, isn't it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2804:14D:4C82:1B11:0:0:0:1 (talk) 13:53, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
