I need some help adding the correct Notable categories to this profile for William H Hunt

+7 votes
William H Hunt served in the Civil war for the Confederate Army, was a Louisiana Judge, Secretary of the Navy, and Minister to Russia.  But I can't find the Notables category that quite fits.  I'm sure he belongs and he has a Wikipedia bio.  Can someone help me get the category right while I continue to complete his profile and his family?  I'm not in the Notables project but I ran into William doing the family tree and thought I would ask for help to get it right.

Well, while he is a Notable, he is also covered by another project so I might recommend leaning his profile in that general direction.


For the template, I believe it would be:

{{US Civil War| side = CSA}}

For categories, he might fit into:

[[Category: Confederate States Armed Forces]]

[[Category: Louisiana Politicians]]

[[Category: US Secretaries of the Navy]]

[[Category: Oak Hill Cemetery, Washington, District of Columbia]]

[[Category: This Day In History June 12]]

[[Category: This Day In History February 27]]

[[Category: Lawyers]]

[[Category: Yale University]]

Another option might be (instead of Yale University, or in addition to it?):

[[Category: Yale Law School]]
Wow. I didn’t think that direction. There are a lot of categories out there that I didn’t even know about. Thanks for the starter list.
