Article Clean Up[edit]

I attempted to reorder and rewrite this article a bit to make it more encyclopedic. It was very opinionated, not neutral, and definitely biased towards religious factors. I am not an expert on the matter, so if anyone is a subject matter expert who can add more detail, that would be great. TimonyCrickets (talk) 04:10, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

I think this article needs to be reworked, it doesn't read as NPOV to me. Dpeters11 (talk) 18:11, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

It's a good start, but I agree- it's not NPOV. It's clear that religion and evangelism were a big part of his life, but this seems over-represented here. I'd like to know exactly why his marketing was revolutionary (perhaps contrasted with other practices at the time). But, the real reason I read this article was to see if I could find out why he named the company "Quaker oats" -- my interest is even more piqued now that I know he was a Christian :-) Morcheeba (talk) 05:04, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

"Businessmen over the years came to know Jesus Christ personally because of the influence of Henry Parsons Crowell". I don't even know what this means.

To Mryan: Yes, I was wondering, too. Also the sentence "At the end of the 19th century, steam engines, telegraph and telephone systems, electricity and typewriters were part of the explosion of technology in America.[2]" at the beginning semms to be totally out of context. -- (talk) 23:03, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
