De-PROD of Trevor Billingham[edit]

Within the Trevor Billingham it states "Occupation school teacher". From reading the article, I assumed their notability was for academics. What would you consider them to be notable for? I'll have a look at the relevant notability guidelines, If I agree. I also have an issue with the sources used, they all seem to be "in-house" non-independent sources.Godsy(TALKCONT) 22:44, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

The assertions of notability are about his services to sport. Whether they stack up or not is another matter, which will depend on sources. This article is clearly not one for proding. If you still think it should be deleted put it to AfD. Editors may then find better sources. Wikipedia:Notability (academics) is about university academics, not secondary school teachers. In fact his spell as a teacher seems to be quite a short one. --Bduke (Discussion) 23:52, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

M. J. S. Dewar[edit]

My name is Eamonn Healy, I spent 10 years working with MJSD and I penned the brief memoir that recently appeared in ACS Symposium series. Let me start by saying that I am deeply appreciative of your expertise in curating, not just Michael's page, but many of those that relate to the quantum chemistry and its methodologies. I am currently preparing a talk relating to Nobel prizes in Theoretical chemistry, and I have recently been focusing on his fraught relationship with Linus Pauling, and that has led me to my confirmation of his FRS designation. How that relates to his contentious relationship with Pauling is an entire story in itself, suffice it to say that the Royal Society website clearly identifies him as being elected as FRS in 1960, a designation confirmed by his posthumous biographical designation by John Murrell in 1998. His standing as a British citizen at the time obviously trumped his American residency. Thank you again for all you do in the service of our discipline — Preceding unsigned comment added by Efhealy (talkcontribs) 04:35, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

No worries. I heard Dewar talk at several conferences. Actually I thought he was elected a Fellow before he left London, but I see he had been across the pond for a year. I have seen some of your papers but a long time ago. --Bduke (Discussion) 06:11, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
