While both spellings are possible, it seems inconsistent to spell his name "Murray" and his father's "Moray". The latter is I believe more common. I realise this creates the disambiguation problem, I prefer "junior" even if it is an Americanism. PatGallacher (talk) 16:34, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
This article has been evaluated as part of an ongoing contributor copyright investigation. I'm heartily sorry to say that from its foundation text was introduced which had been previously published in For the Lion.

With only snippet views available of the book, it is impossible to determine how extensive the duplication is.
Unfortunately, it has been confirmed that Paterson's publisher has not approved the use of this text.
The article needs to be completely rewritten. It is being blanked and listed at the copyright problems board to give interested contributors an opportunity to craft a new version. Content contributed by other users can be used if it does not interact with text from this contributor in such a way as to create an unauthorized derivative work (since the copyright problem versions will probably be deleted, it's important to attribute in edit summary, such as "content contributed by [[User:Example]]"). It will be revisited by an administrator after about a week to see what further steps may be necessary. Thank you. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:26, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
- As stated by Moonriddengirl, the foundation of the article was built on Paterson's writing and any revision would inevitably be an unauthorized derivative work. Unfortunately, it has been necessary to delete the entire article. I have replaced it with a stub article containing some basic facts. I have also included the list of references to assist interested editors in expanding and rebuilding the article. — Cactus Writer (talk) 09:03, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
