Susan Folkman

  • Symbol question.svg The article is new, long enough, and very well referenced. I see no neutrality or copyright issues. The hooks are all cited but I do not think they would draw in readers. The article has a potential for more interesting hooks; for example, Folkman being a stay at home mum for 12 years between earning a BA in history and embarking on an academic career in psychology. (I removed the bit about being a stay at home mum because it was not in the source, but I trust the information is out there somewhere). I am also intrigued by the fact that she first qualified as a historian before becoming an eminent psychologist. Can this be explained in the article a bit better? It might even make for a good hook, unless it's not so unusual in the US.
    A couple of additional remarks. The subject is so evidently notable that I find it surprising that this is a new article on English Wikipedia. Catalan and French Wikipedias have had articles about Folkman since 2017. The article could use a portrait; I suggest asking the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine to change the license of this photograph to either Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 Generic (CC BY-SA 2.0) or Attribution 2.0 Generic (CC BY 2.0). Their FlickR account might be inactive (I am not sure) but perhaps there is another way to contact them. Surtsicna (talk) 20:54, 4 February 2020 (UTC)
Surtsicna, I have emailed Dr. Folkman and she has provided a photo but forgot to include the permissions. I am waiting on a response from her. HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 22:15, 4 February 2020 (UTC)
Even better! I now see the article is missing a citation for the date of birth. Hopefully one can be found. Surtsicna (talk) 22:38, 4 February 2020 (UTC)
Surtsicna, still working on the photo. Re her birthday: on WikiData [1] her birthday is sourced to [2]. Is this okay? HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 04:14, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
A photo is not required for DYK; it would just be a very useful addition (and it might make for a lead hook). I suppose that could work as a DoB reference. Surtsicna (talk) 11:56, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
Surtsicna, So is it G2G besides the photo? HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 02:02, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
