Close paraphrasing[edit]

A note about close paraphrasing was placed at the front of this article (without any mention here of relevant details) Without any identification of where the paraphrasing is occurring (if it is) nothing can be done to rectify itFauncet (talk) 22:11, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
I agree, that I should have specified here, on the talk page, what I had in mind when placing the otherwise vague tag to the article. My apologies.
The concern was related to a couple of blocks of quotations included in the article. They seemed a bit out of place, since they weren't attributed to anyone in particular. I assumed thus, that they were simply direct quotations from the book in reference. Now, on closer look, I see that I was incorrect, though. They are indeed quotations from one or more persons, so no problem actually exists. That aside, they do seem a bit out of place in the article and are rather unencyclopedic. The personal experiences reflected in them don't add much additional detail to the history of the institution and they seem to break the flow of the text. So I propose removing them.(talk) 21:15, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
