2011 Unfilled requests[edit]


Dictionary of Business Biography and Who Was Who[edit]

☒N - no point in cluttering this page with the outstanding requests any longer. The article got GA status without the info, & I can live with that. - Sitush (talk) 00:05, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

I am trying to track down biographical information for the article on Churchill Machine Tool Company and would be grateful if anyone has access to either or both of the Dictionary of Business Biography (ed: David J Jeremy, Butterworths 1984-86, 5 volumes, isbn for the first is 0406273413) or really old copies of Who Was Who could see look into any available entries for:

* Sir Greville Simpson Maginness (born 1888)

  • Arthur Chamberlain (d. circa 1941 - not his father, who had same name and who died in 1913) - sorted, thanks to user:Smallman12q
  • Herbert Chamberlain (1845-1904)
  • Walter Chamberlain (b. 1847)
  • Charles Churchill (b. 1838, USA - d. Feb 1916)
  • John William Wright Gabriel (b. 1860)

All of the above were directors of Charles Churchill & Co Ltd and/or The Churchill Machine Tool Co Ltd. & they mostly had fingers in many pies.

Also, the article on Maginness in the periodical Sheet Metal Industries, volume 25 (1948) p. 1997 - there is a snippet view here [1]. Long list, sorry, but thanks for any assistance. Sitush (talk) 05:48, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

I am pretty sure that this Sheet Metal Industries item is available for full view in the US - if anyone in the USA is prepared to check this then I'd be grateful. It looks like it might fill a few gaps. - Sitush (talk) 09:51, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, it looks like its just snippet view in the US as well. GabrielF (talk) 15:04, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
OK, thanks for trying. I'll leave this up for another week and then strike it. Looks like I'll have to find someone prepared to dig around in the British Library/Cambridge University Library - Sitush (talk) 15:23, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Filled requests[edit]

January 2011[edit]

Help dating 18th century French painter Antoine Graincourt[edit]

Hi friends. I'm attempting to resolve the dating inconsistency in the Antoine Graincourt article and a simple google search is not cutting it. Could someone who has access to an academic library or database help? The article says in the text Graincourt's dates are 1699-1753, but also places him in the category 1748 births and 1823 deaths.

Google searches suggest that the dates 1699-1753 are probably wrong: being actually the birth and death dates for one of the people Graincourt painted, Bertrand-François Mahé de La Bourdonnais. For example, see this biography of Mahé at ("né à Saint-Malo le 11 février 1699 et mort à Paris le 10 novembre 1753") or this museum page from a museum that has Mahé's portrait in its collection, and attributes the 1699-1753 dates to Graincourt, not Mahé. Google also turned up one source for Graincourt completing a painting after 1753: a copy of Hyacinthe Rigaud's portrait of the Marechal de Tourville; the copy is said to have been made in 1780-82

However, even if 1699-1753 is wrong, google can't help me confirm that 1748-1823 is correct. Those dates don't seem to have any online source except Wikipedia and Wikipedia mirrors/copies. Plus, Graincourt paintings include people who died before 1748, such as François Louis de Rousselet, Marquis de Châteaurenault (1637-1716) and René Duguay-Trouin (1673-1736) – though I suppose those could also be copies of earlier paintings. I hope all this is enough info. Thanks! WikiJedits (talk) 15:02, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

I have found support for the 1748 birth date through google books. See here; likewise (with considerable overlap) for a year of death in 1823 [2]. I find no support for 1699 ([3]); hits are coincidental. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 15:55, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much. BTW, do you have access to the full versions of any of those books? While most simply give his dates in a one-line list-type entry, these two look like they might include some actual biographical text that we could use to expand the article – if we could access it.
1. Vivre et mourir à Saint-Etienne aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles‎ - Page 70 … Antoine Graincourt n'a pas laissé un souvenir important, selon les critiques « son dessin est ... Antoine Graincourt commence sa série de tableaux en 1780. ...
2. L'art de la Picardie‎ … ANTOINE-NOEL-BENOIT GRAINCOURT, né à Corbie en 1748, et PIERRE THUILLIER, né à Amiens en 1799, ont passé leur existence artistique hors de la Picardie. ...
Regardless, many thanks for your help here. Best, WikiJedits (talk) 20:24, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm afraid that I do not, but hopefully somebody else here will. :) --Moonriddengirl (talk) 20:55, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

White-winged Tit[edit]

  • Hussain,SA; Tiwari,JK (1992) Status and distribution of White-winged Black Tit in Kachchh, Gujarat India. Bird Conserv. Intl. 1992(2):115-122.
  • Tiwari,JK; Rahmani,AR (1997) The current status and biology of the White-naped Tit Parus nuchalis in Kutch, Gujarat, India. Forktail. 12:79-85.
I have the first one for you (see you e-mail). --тнояsтеn 10:06, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
The second is from Forktail ISSN 0950-1746, OCLC 16862668 which journal is held in 19 major university and depository libraries. Both the authors were published in that journal in 1996, so the spelling of the author names is surely correct. Rahmani worked with the BNHS in 2006, he may still be there for email contact. One citation I found used the "Kachchh" spelling vice "Kutch" in the title. LeadSongDog come howl! 14:24, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

And one from a Chicago newspaper:

WhisperToMe (talk) 01:37, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

I've put the one from the Chicago Tribune here. Let me know when you've got it. Also, have you got the "Hunt is on for escaped killer" article I posted several sections up? Dr pda (talk) 21:10, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
I got the Chicago source. Thank you very much :) WhisperToMe (talk) 22:04, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
Hi WhisperToMe!
When you have received what you asked for in a request, here on WP:Resource exchange (and on the Reference desks), then it is a good thing if you put in a {{resolved}} as the first line just beneath the heading.
This both facilitates automated archiving AND it makes all the helpful people avoid wasting any time, instead letting them jump right to the other sections(requests) where their time and attention is needed.
In cases where you have put multiple resource requests under one heading and not all have been answered yet, then it is a good thing if you use strikeout on the parts of the request that have been answered. (Like DrPda did on part of your request above). It is done like this:
<S>3.Third part of my request.</S>
which results in: 3.Third part of my request.) :-)
Generally it is best if (the work of) adding the {{resolved}} and the <S></S> is done by the one who gets the answer rather than by the one who gives it (or anyone else).
--Seren-dipper (talk) 16:45, 17 October 2010 (UTC) :-)
Aha, I see. From now on I will use "strikeout" when I get a fulfilled request on this page. Once I get the Lexington articles I will add "resolved." Thank you :) WhisperToMe (talk) 03:05, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
    • Sent the LExington Herald-Leader articles via email. GabrielF (talk) 01:11, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

The citation as Volume 8, Issue 11 is correct. The journal is very rare, but maybe I can get it for you. --тнояsтеn 23:19, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
Odd. At p.146 of Sing MK's Equine resources in India and strategy for their conservation he cites that article as
Singh M K and M P Yadav. 2004. The Marwari horse: Pride of India.
Livestock International. 9: 18-21
though to be fair, it does look like a case of questionable typesetting, following as it does directly after
Singh M K, Gupta A K and Yadav M P. 2005. Donkey: its role and the scope for better management. Livestock

International. 9: 18-21 Now, the journal is listed as:

Evidently that is a different journal from this published 1975-85 under:

Could someone with access to Factiva, possibly search for information about Julian Assange's trial for hacking from 1995?

If they don't list the number of employees I can probably get it for you from a business database such as Duns & Broadstreet.

Hm, looks like a Google metadata error when scanned from the NYPL. Other volumes are PD-old, including Volume 5, so you might try giving googlebooks feedback (see the link at the bottom of their page). They may be able to just tweak the metadata and free it up. LeadSongDog come howl! 20:48, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
It's a thought, but I'm in the UK and they do not/cannot give a hoot. The copyright laws are different and we're quite restricted in what we're allowed to see on Google Books cf what people in the US are allowed to see. I can see more than 3 or 4 lines of any Chemical Trade Journal - Sitush (talk) 21:45, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
It looks like it should be available from Hathitrust to IP addresses in the US. They are very cautious about infringing non-US copyrights, blocking access to foreign origin material from 1869-1923 except to US users. In England, the original should be available at the BL (DSC Boston Spa), Newcastle University or Cambridge (check their catalogues for Volume 4). You may be able to get some wikipedian near there to do the legwork if it's not feasible for you. See WP:LIB. It was a weekly, so I think you are looking for one of the April 1889 issues based on the page numbers. Or you could seek out an editor with access to a major US library who can get it from Hathitrust. LeadSongDog come howl! 21:59, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for that. Although I went to Cambridge Uni, I have already tried that particular route and got nowhere (so much for the "famed old boy network") I think I will have to find a receptive US editor. There must be one. Daft thing is, this is a bit speculative: because I can only see about 4 lines of the thing I am not sure how much of that which I cannot see is of use - but something in it will be. Talk about teasers! Thanks again for your help and advice. -Sitush (talk) 23:51, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Sally Pero / Equalizers[edit]


In a paper by Sidney Darlington it is mentioned that Sally Pero (nee Sally Pero Mead) may have been the first person to build an equalizer. I am trying to get a date for this which Darlington unfortunatley does not give. We are talking ATT here so the publication platform is likely the Bell System Technical Journal. If someone can find the index to this, please let me know when (or if) she published. The invention was in connection with submarine telegraph cables so the time-frame is early 20th century, maybe 1920ish. SpinningSpark 17:01, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Check . There are three papers by Sallie Pero Mead:
  • Wave Propagation Over Parallel Tubular Conductors: The Alternating Current Resistance (April 1925, Vol. IV, Issue 2, Page 327)
  • Phase Distortion and Phase Distortion Correction (April 1928, Vol. VII, Issue 2, Page 195)
  • Mutual Impedances of Parallel Wires (July 1935, Vol. XIV, Issue 3, Page 509)
--тнояsтеn 18:11, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
The second one is the relevant subject. It seems to be a later development than the one Darlington describes judging by the abstract, but maybe she gives a date of the earlier device in the paper. SpinningSpark 23:52, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Who's Who in Business[edit]

You do know that Who's Who is not a wp:RS, right? LeadSongDog come howl! 20:41, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
I didn't but would imagine that is so because entries are self-penned. However, this entry is about a company and as such would have the same weight as a trade directory plus, more importantly, it appears to have some information which I would then be able to cross-reference (dates, names, addresses etc. There is a major problem with a corporate history from about 1914 at W & J Galloway & Sons and this thing may kickstart filling in the gaps. - Sitush (talk) 21:00, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Update: I've read some of the RS Noticeboard discussions now. It s/b noted first of all that this is (a) a UK publication, not the US one, and (b) it is not "Who's Who". It is also not being requested for a biographical purpose at all, living person or otherwise. The consensus, as for example illustrated in this discussion, is that care needs to be taken but errors are usually of omission, which is not a problem for my requirements. I really want to nail this article, which I've developed more or less solo from pretty much a stub. It could be as good as Churchill Machine Tool Company, which is also primarily my work (although, as always, has benefited from much useful advice etc from other editors). - Sitush (talk) 21:21, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

SAGE Journals Online: Journal of Contemporary History, April 1972[edit]


I've been trying to clean up citations in Benito Mussolini, and I found this citation:

"Mussolini's Cultural Revolution: Fascist or Nationalist?". 8 January 2008. 

I looked up the URL, and found that it's not a journal article, it's not dated January 2008, and it's not accessible without a SAGE subscription (or a fee of $25 for one day of access, which I wouldn't expect anyone to pay). I restated the citation like this:

"Mussolini's Cultural Revolution: Fascist or Nationalist?". Journal of Contemporary History. SAGE Journals Online. 7 (3): 115–139. April 1972. doi:10.1177/002200947200700308. Retrieved 2011-03-23. (subscription required)

Correcting the citation template was easy. But can anyone confirm that the article text is in fact supported by the citation? The following text is from the Rome-Berlin relations section of the article:

With the assassination of Dollfuss, Mussolini attempted to distance himself from Hitler by rejecting much of the racialism (particularly Nordicism and Germanicism) and anti-Semitism espoused by the German radical. Mussolini during this period rejected biological racism, at least in the Nazi sense, and instead emphasized "Italianizing" the parts of the Italian Empire he had desired to build. He declared that the ideas of Eugenics and the racially charged concept of an Aryan nation were not possible.

Interesting source. I assume you meant 1888 as the start date instead of 1915? It looks like Google has digitized these and when I use my university library portal to search I have access to most years from 1890 - 1905. However, many of those years don't show up when I go directly to and search there so I think they might be restricted to certain universities. You may want to check Google Books to see if you have access. Anyway, here's the section on Nigeria for 1905. Please let me know when you've successfully downloaded the link so I can take it down.

I should have online access to the "Tell me, be you a witch?" article, but for some reason the springer website isn't letting me access it. I'll try it again and if I can't get it online I should be able to get a scan for you in a couple of days. GabrielF (talk) 03:59, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

No problem, looks like I'll have to get a scan of that last article, but I should have this within a week if not sooner. I glanced at the Semiotics Of Salem Witch Trials article, by the way, it reads like an essay at the moment. You're trying to rewrite it? GabrielF (talk) 04:26, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
Yeah. A new user created it yesterday and I didn't just want to slap a maintenance tag on it. I think it contains some salvageable info and there certainly seems to be some scholarship on the topic. I told the creating user on their talk page that I would be happy to help turn it into something that would conform to WP standards. Deyyaz [ Talk | Contribs ] 07:43, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Hmmm, I see a similar work cited on p.124 of this book, which might relate to this paper, but you are more likely looking for OCLC 49875944, also catalogued as OCLC 612106352. It seems to be fairly widely held. LeadSongDog come howl! 21:46, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
Yes, the last two OCLC-signatures are the book from where I would need this one article. Thanks for the search. Someone around with access? --h-stt !? 12:19, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps this is available directly to you? LeadSongDog come howl! 13:02, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

I did not mention that the Munich copy is unavailable, maybe lost at the library where it is recorded. Of course I tried to get it myself there first before making requests here. On this attempt I spent about half an hour with a librarian in a charming little library just off a balcony that is overlooking some mounted dinosaurs. While the librarian tried to locate the publication and did not find it, I browsed through early editions of Darwin's Origins of Species and Descent of Man. I love libraries and I know my way around them. Please deal with this request and me as a capable, long term Wikipedian and avid contributor to the corresponding Germany counterpart of this page. I do know what I am doing and I know why I am asking here. Again: I am looking for a scan of a short excerpt of a fairly widely available publication, can someone please help me get it? --h-stt !? 13:12, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
Don't get me wrong... I'm a German Wikipedian as well and I didn't want to push you off. The magazine is held at Frankfurt University, the book at FU Berlin and TU Freiberg. So I thought, you could be able to get the scan quite fast over there. If that's not possible we'll have to wait for someone resolving this for you here.

June 2011[edit]

March 2011: Time Magazine Article from 1959 and Health Physics 1961, one more time[edit]

1.) Am hoping to see an article from Time Magazine: Vol. 73 from 1959, Author: Henry Robinson Luce. The reference I have does not include an actual article title nor specific page numbers, but page 65 of that volume is within the article I need (which is regarding the Cecil Kelley criticality accident).

Need a fact verified from a JSTOR article[edit]


Our article on Elihu Embree currently states that The Emancipator was the "first newspaper in the United States devoted exclusively to the cause of abolishing slavery." It is sourced to this article. A new editor has challenged this assertion stating that The Philantropist was actually the first. Can someone with JSTOR access take a look at the JSTOR article in order to settle this dispute? Thanks! Kaldari (talk) 05:22, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

A History of Ancient and Early Medieval India: From the Stone Age to the 12th Century[edit]


Trying to resolve a content dispute which involves pages 558 & 559 of the above book, here at GBooks. I cannot see those pages in the preview.

Author is Upinder Singh (Pearson Education, India) & the ISBNs are 813171120X & 9788131711200. Can anyone get hold of scans for the relevant pages please? I realise that this is a long shot. Thanks. - Sitush (talk) 13:26, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

I can get a scan for you in a couple of days. In case the page numbering for my library's copy is different - you want the section "The Far South" in the chapter Emerging Regional Conflagrations, c. 600-1200 CE, right? GabrielF (talk) 17:05, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
Great! Yes, it is the two pages prior to the heading "Religious and political symbolism in the Tanjavur temple", in the section you refer to. As far as I can tell, there is only one edition but let's hope that is correct - I wouldn't want you to be going on some needle/haystack hunt. The entire farrago escalated to ANI today & resulted in a temp block + a two day page protection, so the timing will be perfect. There are a few people thinking that something may have been taken out of context. Me? I just try to resolve sourcing issues in this area, I feel as if by now I must owe you a brewery, let alone a beer. - Sitush (talk) 17:15, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
My pleasure. I've been chained to the computer working on a project recently so these requests are a welcome distraction. I'll let you know when I have it.GabrielF (talk) 17:24, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
OK, I've put the scanned pages online for you here. I'll leave it up for awhile since its needed for a content dispute. GabrielF (talk) 17:23, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
That is very kind of you. I'll download now & point the 3 or 4 involved others to it. I'll chivvy them along & let you know when (hopefully inside 24 hours, since they're all pretty active here). - Sitush (talk) 19:09, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

"santorum" in OED?[edit]


This is one I should do myself, but I'm being lazy, and hopefully someone has instant recourse to the current OED. Is "santorum" in the OED? Mostly I'm looking for a yes/no, but I'd be interested what the entry says. Wnt (talk) 20:11, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

It is not in the OED. GabrielF (talk) 23:58, 17 June 2011 (UTC)
FWIW, the timeline on the OED website indicates that they added only 28 new words between 2000 and 2004, and none since.   Will Beback  talk  23:02, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, I'm not sure that's true. There's a "What's New" page[20] which says that the dictionary is updated four times a year (latest June 2011) and has a list of new words. I think the timeline shows when the words were coined rather than when they were added to the dictionary. (A word might have been first used 50 years ago but only added to the OED this month.) GabrielF (talk) 23:53, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
That makes more sense - it's hard to imagine why they wouldn't keep adding words.   Will Beback  talk  00:11, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
An aside: as someone who studied at Cambridge University and in full acceptance that there is a traditional rivalry between that and Oxford University, the fact that Oxford might be negligent in their scholarship comes as no surprise what so ever. <g> - Sitush (talk) 00:14, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps so. I think I've figured out the apparent discrepancy. The timeline shows the date of first uses, not the date of addition to the dictionary.[21][22] The words added this year were first used long ago.[23] The newest words are from 2004, though new words coined earlier have been added. The lesson is that they don't add words that are newer than six years.   Will Beback  talk  00:46, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
Good detecting. Would be great if they allowed you to add a [clarification needed] tag to their pages! - Sitush (talk) 01:00, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
