The first one (Paul Elard Cooley) is the one attached to the actual author, with information, so the other one should be deleted.

lethe | 13747 comments In his bio and on the covers the name is Paul E. Cooley. I wonder why he chose to display his full name on the author record.

The Paul E. Cooley profile has followers, so the records should be merged by Support.
