Additional information needed[edit]

1. Details of his Rhodes/Oxford studies?

2. Details of his time as president of Kentucky Wesleyan College.

3. Family life----Wife's background? How many children? Names? We have found internet evidence of a John James Tigert VI, presumably his grandson, but we have not been able to connect the dots.

3. Need greater details regarding his 7 years as U.S Education Commissioner, including specific policies and accomplishments.

4. Need greater details of his involvement with the NCAA's creation of the grant-in-aid.

5. Need details of his Indian higher education consultant work.

6. What specific classes did he teach as a college professor?

If you have additional details or references, please add them to the article or contact the undersigned. Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 14:04, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

GA Review[edit]

Lede[edit]

  • As with the last GAN, needs to be expanded; I'd suggest two paragraphs. A bit more on his education, what he did in his various roles, etc.

Yes check.svg Done Expanded lede, but I am resisting the insertion of duplicate details from the main body text. With your consent, I would prefer to keep the lede as an overview. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:23, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

  • "and political appointee"? Sounds slightly defamatory (I know it's not). I'd suggest "university professor and administrator who served as the U.S. Commissioner of Education from 1921 to 1928", amending the next few sentences to take the mention into account.

Yes check.svg Done Agreed. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:23, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Early life and education[edit]

  • Link Nashville.

Yes check.svg Done Linked in previous sentence. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:27, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

  • "member of Phi Delta Theta" - "member of the Phi Delta Theta"

Yes check.svg Done Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:27, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Any links for "All-Southern"?
Unfortunately not. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:27, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Educator, et al[edit]

  • "Wesleyan Central College" - is that the same as this? If so, could you link it?
No, sir. I confirmed that it is the school in Fayette, Missouri. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:27, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
  • "the age of twenty-seven, he was" - "the age of twenty-seven, was"

Yes check.svg Done Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:27, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

  • "After returning to the United States, Tigert taught at the Methodist-affiliated Wesleyan Central College,[6] and, at the age of twenty-seven, he was appointed president of Kentucky Wesleyan College. That same year, he married the former Edith Jackson Bristol" - it doesn't mention which year that was.

Yes check.svg Done Inserted 1909. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:27, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

  • "While a professor at Kentucky" - "While there"

Yes check.svg Done Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:27, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

  • "Tigert also established the faculty senate, the Institute of Inter-American Affairs and the Bureau of Economic and Business Research." - needs an inline citation

Yes check.svg Done Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:27, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

  • "1947.[23] Afterward, he worked as an educational consultant " - "1947,[23] working as an educational consultant "

Yes check.svg Done Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:27, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, sir, for your expedited GA review. Please let me know if you have any additional comments, changes, etc. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:27, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Kentucky men's basketball conference records[edit]

Obtained by comparing the schedules at www.bigbluehistory.net (1913 1916 1917) to the list of SIAA members given at Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (yes, I know that Wikipedia is not a reliable source). If anyone else has a better way to get this information or more reliable sources, have at it, but that's where I got those numbers. cmadler (talk) 14:49, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Damn, Cmadler. You've been doing it the same way I have for SIAA football records! I was hoping you had something better. Oh, well, great minds think alike, eh? Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 15:19, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Likewise for the football records, using the College Football Data Warehouse. I did confirm that Kentucky Wesleyan was actually independent in football when he coached them. cmadler (talk) 15:54, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
