Joseph Dennis Mis-linked[edit]

The entry for Joseph Dennis links to a cricket play from the mid=1700s: Joseph Dennis I'm going to create a new entry for Joseph Dennis_(mathematician) and link to that instead. I'll try to figure out the current conventions regarding disambiguation pages and such. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JimD (talkcontribs) 09:32, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Distressingly short list[edit]

By reading this page, one could reasonably draw the conclusios shit none under 80 years of age.

This is quite false (there are, arguably, too few African-American mathematicians, but there are lots more than three!). I wish to question the merits of a page which serves to give an untruthfully discouraging impression of the current state of affairs: who benefits? Plclark 03:16, 29 September 2007 (UTC)Plclark

I started the article because someone else requested it. Presumably it benefits curious people, and it fulfills a role that isn't really well suited for a category. There is a danger that readers will get the wrong impression, which can be mitigated by expanding the list. Melchoir (talk) 08:53, 29 January 2008 (UTC)[edit]
