Library of Congress

  • On the Library of Congress website, there is a 108 page document on the history of Vulcan. I have started to go through it, but I would greatly appreciate any help in extracting useful information from it to add to our Vulcan page. When complete we should be able to remove the "GFDL & CC dual licensed articles" category from the article.

  • Yikes. We'd be doing the world a service if we downloaded and transcribed (OCR) that stack of .tifs behind their ridiculous URLs. Anyone up for it? Maybe a job for the mechanical turk? --Dystopos 15:33, 7 November 2006 (PST)

Rice's Vulcans?

It says: President George W. Bush's foreign policy advisory team, led by Condoleezza Rice was nicknamed "The Vulcans".

Hmm. Sez who? ;-) -- Rob 14:06, 27 November 2006 (PST)

  • Never mind; I found this -- at Wikipedia, naturally: [2]. -- Rob
  • I was thinking about asking the same thing, but I wonder what their reference is? I don't follow Rice or Bush too closely, but I do try to keep my ear out for "Birmingham" references. --Wheresdib 14:11, 27 November 2006 (PST)
  • Like Rob, I answered my own question by clicking the link. --Wheresdib 14:15, 27 November 2006 (PST)

Team of fourteen foundrymen

The new sentence about the team of fourteen foundrymen seems to have lost its verb, at the least. --Lkseitz 07:42, 12 November 2012 (PST)

Conception

  • Sometimes you'll see a note that the first known image of Vulcan in relation to Birmingham appeared in 1886. In my judgment, this is erroneous. The image in question, accompanying an advertisement for George Kelley's hardware in Template:DuBose-1886 (link), is actually a depiction of Hercules, as you can tell by his garment made of a lion's pelt. --Dystopos (talk) 13:46, 27 July 2016 (PDT)
