Thanks. I'll think on those.

Note, Cajal is already here:
https://hmolpedia.com/page/Top_2000_candidates

Also, to clarify, the IQ Gold Book, will just be a ranking of the top 2,000 “historical names”, the same as this list:
https://hmolpedia.com/page/Top_2000_geniuses_and_minds

Hence, if you want to suggest existive (current) candidates, e.g. Susskind or Gell-Mann, just post those in this forum section:

Repeats:

Heinrich Hertz (IQ:180|#183)
Louis Broglie (IQ:180|#207)
John Wallis (IQ:175|#275)
Niccolo Tartaglia (IQ:175|#305)
William Whewell (IQ:175|#345)
Edmund Brucke (IQ:170|#477)
Thomas Harriot (IQ:155|#866)
Thomas Kuhn (IQ:#|#)

To avoid this, in the future, simply key term search, via core mononym (e.g. Kuhn), the following two page:
https://hmolpedia.com/page/Top_2000_minds_(full_list)
https://hmolpedia.com/page/Top_2000_candidates

Other notes:
Otto Hahn (Becker 160:69)
Johannes Rydberg (Thims 97:51)

What sort of criterion or methodology or finding procedure do you employ to generate these candidate suggestion lists?
All the best, Libb.
