I'm adding some NRHP-related info to this article. I had, back in May 2011 created a duplicative article at William A. Edwards and myself noted the duplication, and was proceeding to merge information to here. That was interrupted. What seemed like a wolf-pack or a witchhunt was going on (in discussion at wt:NRHP) and the material was lost with assertions of "nothing to merge" and self-satisfied nasty comments. Anyhow, I am back and I am proceeding with the damn merge. There is not too much to add probably, but the noting of NRHP listing is worth making with each NRHP-listed item at least. I am not sure yet whether there are any completely new additions to this article. It appeared the material included some new items because it included redlinks, but maybe those will all turn out to require creation of redirects to already existing articles. In the process of developing this, I am going off on necessary tangents, like to create Flint Hall (disambiguation), a needed dab page. Vile and hateful comments not wanted, but if anyone has something constructive to say, go ahead. I'll watch here. --doncram 15:15, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Done with the addition, which added addresses and identification of NRHP-listing for many items. I left a stray sentence "More than 25 of his works have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, either as individual buildings or as contributing buildings within historic districts." in a section on its own. This could be moved/merged into a different biographical section. But the article is chopped up badly as it is, and I don't see a proper section to move this to, right now. If the article was rewritten, I am sure an editor could/would absorb this easily somewhere else. --doncram 19:09, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
