New Participatory Project: Cleaning up Tobacco Documents Biographies

[img_assist|nid=6159|title=|desc=|link=url,|align=right|width=84|height=157]We need help cleaning up existing articles in our new Tobaccowiki Biographies database. Tobaccowiki is a new project to mine information from tobacco industry documents now available online. The Biographies articles contain information on people affiliated with the tobacco industry, such as consultants, political allies, and employees. You can help by editing any of the articles - everything from reformatting to rewording sentence fragments to adding new information is very helpful! We're especially interested in strengthening articles on: Allen M. Brandt, the author of the new book Cigarette Century; Bing Crosby, who endorsed Chesterfield cigarettes; Albert Gore, the U.S. vice-president during major tobacco litigation; and Norma Broin, who launched a landmark legal case against cigarette companies.
