The article in question has been removed - it is now a 404 error, so is that a good reason why the information may be used? As there is NO information in this article, maybe someone may consider incorperating the little that was at http://web.archive.org/web/20080430081955/http://www.mnsu.edu/emuseum/information/biography/klmno/krogman_wilton.html

I came here looking for info from http://www.edconrad.com to find out about the picture of him holding ' the worlds oldest skull'. This is not even mentioned here - is there a cover up in progress? 188.220.186.57 (talk) 12:54, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

Just don't complain[edit]

I wrote, or rewrote, the article you now see. Everything below the first sentence is new. (I don't even know how to find the offensive and deleted article that used to occupy the space.)

It is ALL based on the bio published by National Academy of Sciences, by William Haviland, a longtime colleague n friend. It seems like an excellent source. But it's only the one source, much condensed and gently rewritten. I know. I'm sorry.

I'll try to come back when I'm not tired, to add in-line citations, and additional sources. Not that there are many. Now 6 pages into a Google search I find lots of stuff borrowed from Haviland's bio, but very little that is different. But I can't get to it today.

The only thing I know myself is that Wilton Krogman has the same first name as I do.  :-) That's it.

I don't know nothing about anthropology. I don't even watch forensic crime shows on TV.

So anyone else is free to add fresh material from varied sources.

Meanwhile please don't complain about the way I broke the one-source rule. That's unless you'd prefer to go back to a one-sentence bio here. Five (5) years without a real entry on this enormously influential scientist!

Well, some folks would prefer that, I guess. If they're too lazy to fix it themselves, they'll just delete it. LOL.
