Dear David Halprin,

The article was deleted as a result of two deletion discussions (<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia ... ard_Larson>, <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia ... _B._Larson>), the general consensus seeming to be there is not enough published material about him (not by him) to meet our General Notability Criteria (<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:GNG>, or in brief <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:42>.

If you feel an incorrect result was reached based on the points raised, you can raise a Deletion Review <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:DRV>.

Yours sincerely,
Matthew Dann

I forwarded David's original email to you with contact info of others that might be interested.
