I have only read one entry --the one for Suzanne LaFollette --but I found four mistakes in just that one page. This is rather disturbing. What are the other entries like? Since I have actually interviewed LaFollette's colleagues and relatives, I'm pretty sure I have *my* information right. Here are the mistakes:
1) She was born in 1893 (not 1894) as every other source on the Internet will say.
2) She graduated from college in 1919 in Washington DC.
3) She was the managing editor of the 1920 Freeman, not the "editor." That was Albert Jay Nock's position.
4) She didn't "establish" National Review. William F. Buckley did. She was there at the beginning but as managing editor.
If this author can make that many mistakes in just one page with just one person, how much can we trust the rest?
For an accurate bio on LaFollette, try alf.org/lafollette.php (that's mine) or search on "Riggenbach and LaFollette" for another excellent bio.
