Middle initial[edit]

The article was previously titled using Kipke's middle initial. Having researched Michigan football extensively, this naming had bothered me for years, as Kipke was generally referred to (both in his playing and coaching days) as "Harry Kipke" with no middle initial. Thus, a google news archive search of "Harry Kipke" results in over 3,000 hits. A similar search for "Harry G. Kipke" results in less than 100 hits. Further, his biography at the College Football Hall of Fame here and at the Bentley Historical Library here all omit the middle initial. For these reasons, I have today moved the article to "Harry Kipke." Cbl62 (talk) 15:03, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
