Researching Waterford, Hertfordshire got me interested in stained glass and in particular in the stained glass artists of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Recently I have gone back to my pacifist roots and contributed a couple of pages on important English pacifists and have recently (2014) been trying to improve the coverage of the works of the Brazilian writer Jorge Amado.

My main contributions, more or less in alphabetical order, have been:
