Each week we put up two Notables whose profiles need some TLC for community members to collaborate on. This includes adding/improving a biography, adding sources, connecting the notable to the Tree, adding photos, etc.

In an effort to improve our Notables profiles, we're starting up a weekly challenge called "Notable Knockouts".

Each Thursday we'll post two Notables profiles that are in need of some major TLC.

To be considered a knockout the profile has to:

  • Have a detailed biography with in line citations (a bio that isn't copied from somewhere else).
  • Have quality sources from somewhere other than just Wikipedia.
  • Have at least one image.
  • Be connected to the Global Tree.

Bonus improvements, if you want to go above and beyond, could include things like:

  • Editing the person's Wikipedia profile to include links to their WikiTree profile.
  • Add WikiTree ID to WikiData
  • Adding relevant categories and/or templates.
  • Adding to their family connections.

Once a profile reaches Knockout status, we have a nifty Notable Knockouts template we can add to the comments section.

The Challenge: We want to make this fun so we thought we'd try having teams. Each profile is posted as an answer below. If you want to work on Team Lennon, post under that answer. If you want to work on Team Salinger, post under that answer. Each "team" can communicate there about who is working on what part of the profile. Yay, collaboration!

Team members that work on the profile that reaches Knockout status first will get a fun template in the comments section of their profiles.

Note: The profile that doesn't win will move on to compete in the next Knockout!

The two Knockouts in the ring are:
