Material asserted to be on page 168 is accepted AGF. The article as a whole uses inline citations, and was an interesting read. As written, it passed an Earwig copyvio check. I will refile this nomination under 8 April per the rules at Template talk:Did you know and Wikipedia:Did you know. QPQ provided. Vycl1994 (talk) 04:20, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
Symbol question.svg @Nonmodernist: Upon further review, I have one more question. The lede mentions that Margaret Hayden Rorke was an actress, but the body of the article does not contain any reliably sourced information on her acting career. As such, I don't think calling her an actress in the lede is warranted. See WP:LEDE for more detail. If reliable sources cover Rorke's acting career in detail, please add the information. If there are no reliable sources on her acting career, I suggest removing "actress" from the lede. Vycl1994 (talk) 05:13, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
