Talk:William Allen White

From This Might Be A Wiki


One wonders if his family knows/consents to this plastering of his face over so many places by a rock band. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 10:48, 7 Apr 2006 (CDT)

I'm sure someone has told them by now, wouldn't you think, we should e-mail and ask them. hovieja 22:25, December 4, 2006

Will's Head[edit]

I have nowhere else to ask. I want a high resolution file of the image of william allen white's head for use in my art and so I can make a t-shirt for myself. Please help. My e-mail is, feel free to e-mail me a file if you have it, I can reward you. hovieja 22:22, December 4, 2006

While this is, well, significantly after the fact, is there any way that a hires photo (that may still exist out there) can be e-mailed to before January 26, 2008? Thanks in advance. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:47, January 22, 2008


15 Historian chose HIM as the most influential in Kansas history? Over Dwight David Eisenhower?--Pittsburghmuggle 17:09, 30 August 2009 (UTC)


Who was this head replaced with? Instead of this dude's head there's someone's face. Who's face? —The thing Talk 23:40, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

are you referring to this? it's an image they frequently used during the john henry era. --ant 23:50, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
Might also be Mario Cuomo —Preceding unsigned comment added by PyrrhonWheatley (talkcontribs) 13:54, September 13, 2017
A closeup of Mario Cuomo's face is currently used as the logo for the "ParticleMen" TMBG YouTube channel. Seems to fit this idea they like of a random black-and-white face representing the band in various ways (see also "Name"). --MisterMe (talk) 09:18, 9 December 2021 (EST)


In one of my all-time fav interviews, Flans says, "He's Edward White. He's in the encyclopedia where E.B. White should be." Wikipedia lists a number of Edward White's so I'm not quite clear on which one Flans was thinking of. --Self Called Nowhere 10:13, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

i suppose he was an...insult to the fact checkers? - fork 07:52, June 25, 2021
Well-said. :-) --MisterMe (talk) 09:18, 9 December 2021 (EST)

some jink[edit]

removed my edit to the front page. this wikipedeo is turning into an oligarchy. all i said is William Allen white probably was an ice cream guy. he looks like one. like not fat or anything but he probably enjoyed a nice dish of butter brickle or some kind of pecan ice cream back in his day in the 1900s. —Preceding unsigned comment added by WhatTheHeckLinnell (talkcontribs) 15:45, November 20, 2012

So as to help people remember what it is that his name is and such[edit]

Why doesn't his face down there link to this article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:51, May 25, 2021
