Nora Houston[edit]

Impeessive article! I was able to find one example of her art, in collaboration with Adele Clark, so I've added it. I'll crop and touch it up once I'm home. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.9% of all FPs 15:35, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Adam Cuerden, that's great! Thank you for adding it! ScoutHarris (talk) 15:42, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Anna Whitehead Bodeker[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 23 August 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Anna Whitehead Bodeker, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that when Virginia suffragist Anna Whitehead Bodeker was not allowed to cast a ballot in the 1871 municipal election in Richmond, she put a note in the ballot box claiming her right to vote? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Anna Whitehead Bodeker. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Anna Whitehead Bodeker), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

The Signpost: 30 August 2019[edit]

Nora Houston[edit]

Finally dug up Raleigh Lewis Wright's book, and as I suspected it didn't really offer much more useful information. One thing: you had her instructor named as "Lily M. Morgan", but a couple of sources (including Wright) indicate that her name was "Lillie Logan" (sometimes "Lily", instead - but "Lillie" seems to have been the preferred version), so I've taken the liberty of renaming her and linking her in the article. Wright has a little information, so I think I can knock together an article tonight. Hope you don't mind...otherwise keep up the good work, and happy editing! --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 17:39, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Ser Amantio di Nicolao, That’s great. Thank you for making that correction. ScoutHarris (talk) 17:54, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
Any time. Glad Wright's book ended up being of some use after all. :-) --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 17:56, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
FYI, I went ahead and created an entry for Lillie Logan. Rather thin gruel, but I think it should just barely pass muster. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:49, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
Ser Amantio di Nicolao, awesome. I've got some contacts at the Valentine--they might have additional information on her or maybe a list of works featured there. I'll see what I can find out! ScoutHarris (talk) 01:53, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
Great, thanks. I'd love to see more from their collection wend its way into Wikipedia - I know of a couple of other women artists whose work they own, but I'm afraid their online catalog isn't always the most user-friendly. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:55, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
