"Degree" columnEdit

Does the degree column refer only to degrees that the person received from BYU, or all degrees that they received? I am assuming that it is only for degrees from BYU, but I wanted to check before adding some people. Scd123 (talk) 16:25, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Incorrect attributionEdit

Philo Taylor Farnsworth is not an alumnus of BYU and did not receive a B.S. from the institution. I do not know what your source for such a claim would be. He may have received an honorary Doctorate degree from BYU in 1968, just a few years before his death, but back when he was first living in Provo in 1923-24, and doing his early work on television, he attended Brigham Young High School. He did enroll at BYU later, but the professors at BYU would not allow him to attend the university advanced courses he wanted to, and they did not recognise his previous course work. (He had already attended high school in Idaho.) In fact, he had such a low regard for his professors, and they paid so little attention to him, that he soon became impatient with his whole setup at BYU, and he joined the Navy on a whim. This decision was short-lived, because he worried over patent rights to his inventions. He later returned to BYU again, but left after attending the university for only a single year, without graduating. Of course, after his reputation grew, BYU was more than happy to turn around and claim him.

I say this without any malice toward BYU. I am a BYU alumnus myself. But the representation of Philo Farsworth as a BYU alumnus is simply not true and I believe the site should be edited to reflect that. I know this as not only a Farnsworth biographer, but also a member of his family (his grand-nephew). The information I have on his life is from his wife's biography and summarized here: (http://www.byhigh.org/History/Farnsworth/PhiloT1924.html) Playerpage (talk) 20:49, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Gold Medalists in volleyballEdit

This article discusses the seven BYU grads who were part of the 2008 USA men's olympic team. http://magazine.byu.edu/?act=view&a=2280 Wrad (talk) 17:34, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Johnny Miller did not win the Masters tournament in 1980, or the PGA championship in 77. Should be fixed —Preceding unsigned comment added by Scooter13331 (talkcontribs) 11:04, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Is this article worth splittingEdit

This article is getting large, and saving edits takes a long time. For some universities, such as the University of Michigan, the alumni list has been split into sub-lists along the lines of the sections we have here. We probably would not need all the sections to have seperate lists, maybe initially have the header information here, and then have two or three other articles where we have the actual lists.John Pack Lambert (talk) 02:47, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

I'd rather not split the article, due to the benefits of having a one-stop for BYU alumni, but I'm open to ideas. Save-time can be minimized by editing individual sections. —Eustress talk 21:59, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

LinksEdit

Is there any way to make all the alumni without a Wikipedia Article not be red? I was able to remove the link, but then it doesn't sort by last name (it sorts by first name). Jhunt47 (talk) 06:56, 6 November 2011 (UTC)
