Thank you for the short and complete view on the person, described: "Nigel Williams was a conservator at the British Museum before conservation was recognized as a profession, and as an early figure in an emerging field, he reconstructed a number of world famous artifacts. When only 23 he was tasked with restoring the Sutton Hoo helmet, regarded as “the most iconic object” from "one of the most spectacular archaeological discoveries ever made", and near the end of his life he took to pieces and reconstructed the Portland Vase, “probably the most famous glass object in the world”. He spent his entire career, and most of his life, working at the museum, and died while in Jordan to work on an excavation."! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:49, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Gerda Arendt, it was a fun and interesting one to write—and, like most of the articles I've brought to FA, one that you had a hand in at DYK. It's an article, like the related one on John Doubleday that is currently nominated, that I wasn't expecting to do much with, yet the two turned out to among my favorites to write. Back to helmets after this I think, though: next one is another of yours. --Usernameunique (talk) 09:11, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

DYK for Will P. Brady

Updated DYK query.svgOn 26 June 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Will P. Brady, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that 19 years after Will P. Brady prosecuted the "legal lynching" of a 15-year-old murder suspect, Brady's brother, a judge, himself became the defendant in a death penalty trial? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Will P. Brady. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Will P. Brady), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Huh? Re: John W. Brady
In 1893 he purchased property from his parents for $1,000;[note 1]
In 1858 John Brady sold the property back to his parents for the same price.
Born 6 April 1869
Selling it back before bought is pretty hard. Selling anything before you are born is outstanding! Shenme (talk) 02:14, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
Attorney, judge, murderer, time traveler. Shenme, you and I have someone to look up to! —Usernameunique (talk) 02:57, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
