Rewrite needed[edit]

I'm not entirely sure, but the information appears to be taken from the 1907 edition of The Nuttall Encyclopædia. The problem is that it reads like 1907. Viriditas (talk) 09:43, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Well I have a litle time today, but it could probably use more. I did mention on the talk page for the sidebar template that I think it is too big and tends to dominate articles. Perhaps just remove the people links, since many are in the template on the bottom, which is less intrusive. He was English, so using British English might be expected (e.g. "Whilst")? Ironically the dates are in American so I will adopt that style since that is what I speak. W Nowicki (talk) 17:44, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
Great. There's still some outstanding issues. For example, in 1907, they did believe that people died from catching cold, and the article still implies that is true. Viriditas (talk) 03:30, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
