    Just a note to say that "Mackenzie King" and "William Lyon Mackenzie" are one and the same person. (His full name was William Lyon Mackenzie King, but was commonly called Mackenzie King).

    "Binnenhop" should read Binnenhof.

    "Professor Kraneburgh" in text and tags should read Professor Roelof Kranenburg.

    "Professor Levenbach" is Marius Levenbach.
