David | 2 comments Hi Folks,

I was looking up books by the author George Grant (Canadian Philosopher) and I got a bunch of books that were American. So I looked in wikipedia, and I saw that there are two authors with this name. I put a couple of sample books for each
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_...
Lament for a Nation
George Grant Reader

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_...
The Importance of the Electoral College
The Courage and Character of Theodore Roosevelt

Yikes. 4 pages of books https://www.goodreads.com/author/list... . It is a claimed author profile also. At least the "philosopher"/the unclaimed author has the lesser of the books and could be more easily pulled off.

This is the one whose work we could pull off I believe https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_...

One of the books listed is on a different profile: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... and here, a full profile https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Emy (emypt) | 5022 comments Since this is a big task, could I suggest that David edits the original thread and moves it to the Projects folder?

David | 2 comments I moved it to the Looking for a Project? Folder. I hope that is what you meant.

Thanks for all your hard work folks.

David

Redangel333 | 256 comments Just to get it right, which profiles are the ones to keep?
George Grant is claimed by the American Author.

Are the books from the Canadian going to be under George Parkin Grant or shall that one be merged with George Grant?

It seems to me that we have historically been putting them all on George Parkin Grant. Many of the editions that need to be moved, are already on the George Parkin Grant profile as a different edition. The others need author name corrected and combined. He's got a bio there and followers. But I'm a newb so don't take me as a final word.

Redangel333 | 256 comments I moved a few from the claimed profile to the George Parkin Grant profile. Not sure if I got them all, probably worth a double check from someone else.
