Not related to Coutts Bank[edit]

Quoting from the introduction to the 'Sweet Gwendoline' collection: "The family was apparently upper-middle class, but was not related to the British bank of the same name, as has been frequently misstated... In response to this very question (in 1979), one of John's sisters, a retired school teacher, replied: 'I'm afraid that there is no truth what-so-ever that we are related or even remotely connected with the Bank of Coutts (I have often wished we were!)'" --Calair 13:14, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

That looks worth mentioning in the article. Just Googling: would the bio here be viewed as a reliable source? Gordonofcartoon 14:13, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

and i love him

It's pretty much a self-published source, which is generally discouraged (see WP:SPS). That said, it looks as if a lot of the information there is drawn directly from the 'Sweet Gwendoline' intro anyway, so it should be reasonably accurate. I don't have time to go through the whole thing, but I will add the bit about Coutts to the article. --Calair 14:34, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Legal rights[edit]

Does anybody know who owns the rights to Willie's/Coutts' work?--Mightyfastpig (talk) 22:57, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Moved from article[edit]

(Where does this tale about John A. S. Coutts and Borges come from? In 1938, Coutts was living in Sydney, not in Melbourne. I have several letters from Coutts to a friend in Chicago, dated 1937 & '38, in which he discusses various things, but makes no mention of Borges. There may have been someone named "Coutts" who was interested in Borge, but, in Australia, at least, Coutts is a common name. – J. B.
