I have harvested my notes and library for potential topics for articles. I do not know enough about most of these subjects to write about them (thought I'm not making any promises not to do so in the future). Some of the titles are bound to overlap and because I mainly manually typed this information, there are probably spelling mistakes.

I update the pages one at the time. Add any relevant comments you have but let me remove the blue links. That way I can check the progress and comment on the false redirects. However, if you do notice a misspelling, go ahead and correct it. I have checked these lists for possible redirects but mainly with the policy "If in doubt, leave it out".

These categories may seem loose to experts and no doubt those who know more about these things may complain about the terms I have used but I've only done my best. And there are bound to be mistakes with this amount of material.

As far as biographies are concerned, I have kept the names and dates as they were in the original sources so some of the people may have died already. If you think someone is in a wrong category, discuss about it in the talk page. But if you know enough about someone to see the difference, maybe you could write the article about them.
