  • Symbol possible vote.svg @Andrew Davidson, Iainmacintyre, and Axxter99: New and long enough, QPQ done, Earwig detects no copyvios (but all of the sources are offline). I'm concerned that 8 of the 13 references are papers by Wade himself, which runs afoul of point 5 of WP:SELFPUB; there need to be more third-party sources. The "Urological surgeon", "Marriage", and "Death" sections lack references. Also, is it reasonable to call him a "pioneer cancer researcher" when his theory about cancer was incorrect? I think it's a good job at writing an article about an interesting subject, but it needs a wider variety of sources. John P. Sadowski (NIOSH) (talk) 03:31, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

Points well taken. I have added citations , mainly from BMJ Obituary available online. He is not remembered for his erroneous cancer theory so that has been deleted. Thanks Papamac (talk) 17:01, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

@Andrew Davidson, Iainmacintyre, and Axxter99: I'd still like to see at least one secondary source per paragraph. John P. Sadowski (NIOSH) (talk) 00:26, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

  • I'm quite busy with other commitments this week, alas. I might get to it next week. Andrew D. (talk) 22:15, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Symbol redirect vote 4.svg I have been through the article, checking its citations. I have checked that there's at least one secondary source per paragraph – in most cases, it's a reference to one of the obituaries. I fixed up the one case of a {{citation needed}}. I reckon it's reasonably good now but, if more seems needed, please identify the specific passage. Andrew D. (talk) 09:34, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol voting keep.svg As this nomination has been hanging round for some time, I will finish the review. The article is long enough and was nominated in good time. The hook is interesting and the facts are cited inline. The article is neutral, seems to be adequately cited and is free of copyvios, as far as I can see. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 06:27, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg Hi, I came by to promote this, but don't see anything written in the article about Dott being an "innovative" surgeon. Yoninah (talk) 21:03, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
Or this one? Cwmhiraeth (talk) 05:02, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
  • ALT2: ... that Sir Henry Wade (pictured) saved the leg of teenage Norman Dott, inspiring him to change his career from engineering to surgery?
  • Symbol voting keep.svg It's not possible to infer the ALT2 hook fact from the sentence in the article, so I'll pass on that. ALT1 is succinct and hooky; offline ref AGF and cited inline. ALT1 good to go. Yoninah (talk) 21:52, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
