I deleted this from the article:

It would be much better to actually read the results of that search and type the information into an article format. No copying and pasting, please. Wikipedia is an attempt to produce real encyclopedia articles. I'm sure Mary Louise Smith is an important figure. Please tell us about her. Wesley 02:11 Apr 30, 2003 (UTC)

The only books I've read that mention Mary Louise Smith have no doubt that her father was an alcoholic. The fact that she has rejected this claim as untrue would be great information to use IF IT WERE SOURCED! I am dying to know where this information came from.

The problem here is that the claim itself is unsourced. I too have read of her father's alleged alcoholism. I believe it was in a NY Times article about Claudette Colvin, but I'm not positive. Even though I'm fairly sure it's factually correct, I removed it for the time being, as a potential BLP concern. Do you have a source that we could use for this article?
