common name[edit]

The first line says, "The William E. Harmon Foundation Award for Distinguished Achievement among Negroes, commonly referred to as the Harmon Award or Harmon Foundation Award, was a philanthropic and cultural award created in 1926 by William E. Harmon[1] and administered by the Harmon Foundation." We would ordinarily title an article by its most commonly-recognized name, with redirects from formal and alternate and lesser-used names. Is a move to "Harmon Award" or "Harmon Foundation Award" in order? --Lquilter (talk) 03:52, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
