  • ... that María Urquides was the "Mother of Bilingual Education"? Source: Shortly after passage of the Bilingual Education Act, President Richard M. Nixon called on Maria to sit once again on the White House Conference on Children and Youth. She had earned the title “Mother of Bilingual Education.”

  • Symbol question.svg Quite the subject for this biography. Made in a sandbox and copied over a redirect by same author, this is a newly created biography at over 10kb prose with lots of citations. Citations are throughout the text. Many citations are books I'm not able to access online and I'll AGF rather than request interlibrary loan. Sources I can find validate the hook, I'm confident those two books cited [1][2] do as well. It's written neutrally. This will be the author's third DYK so it is QPQ exempt.
  • The only problem is the uncited list items in the "Selected awards" section. Some don't have wikilinks to assist understanding. Please fix this and I'll approve the DYK. – Muboshgu (talk) 03:47, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for the responses, Muboshgu. I will attend to the awards and add Wikilinks where available. Much appreciated. (talk) 15:53, 3 October 2022 (UTC) OK, done, Muboshgu. Let me know if you see anything else! (talk) 15:59, 3 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Many items in "Selected awards" remain uncited. What is the Hispanic Hall of Fame referring to? – Muboshgu (talk) 18:48, 6 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think I have addressed all the issues - apologies, I posted in the wrong place, so this appears overdue,. Thanks for the patience. Let me know if everything looks OK now. ProfessorBeaver (talk) 21:24, 20 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Muboshgu: what's the status of this nomination? theleekycauldron (talkcontribs) (she/her) 17:22, 1 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Pings are helpful as I had not seen it. The selected awards are cited, but I had failed to notice some other places that need citations. I added {{cn}} tags. ProfessorBeaver, please address those and ping me when you have. – Muboshgu (talk) 17:56, 1 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Muboshgu: Added the requested citations - thanks for catching those and for your patience with the lack of pings (doh!). ProfessorBeaver (talk) 19:48, 1 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Muboshgu: I keep trying to ping you, but seem to missing some technique. Trying again. See above note. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ProfessorBeaver (talkcontribs) 13:53, November 15, 2022 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg @ProfessorBeaver: I believe you have to sign your posts for the ping to go through, so I didn't get the one right above. I don't recall getting the one on November 1, but that was a lifetime ago in Internet time. This is g2g. – Muboshgu (talk) 22:40, 18 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi again. added missing content, as requested. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ProfessorBeaver (talkcontribs) 21:08, 6 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Checking in again, User:Muboshgu. I know you cover a lot of territory and have your hands full, but wondered if I had added the needed content for my DYL nomination on María Urquides. Thanks. ProfessorBeaver (talk) 17:32, 10 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A detail[edit]

Could the term "gringacita" be defined, either in prose or with context or a link? As someone with very little Spanish, I would think it just means "little gringa" but it's hard to tell if there is innuendo or further meaning than that. -Pete Forsyth (talk) 20:31, 1 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • @Peteforsyth: - I linked it to gringa, where readers can look into the term. But you are correct, it means little gringa (feminine). MX () 05:22, 24 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


It would be helpful to work in information about where she was active in the lead section, and in the beginning of each section. For instance, the end of the "Early life..." section ends with mention of universities in NM and CA; I think the next section begins by making reference to a return to Tucson, and it mentions specific schools and neighborhoods, but there's no way to discern what state/city those schools or neighborhoods are in. -Pete Forsyth (talk) 20:35, 1 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
