Definition The person, persons, group, organization, or other subject that is honored by the individual panel.
Usage

Do not use "Unknown"—just leave the field blank.

Use the correct form of the name when available in Library of Congress Authorities.

If an authoritative version of a name is not available, create one:

  • Invert personal names (as much as is known of Last name, First name, Middle name or initial, Birth and/or death date(s)).
  • Do not use honorifics, titles, or nicknames unless it is necessary to disambiguate (e.g., the first name of the person is unknown). Otherwise, these alternate forms of names (such as “Buddy” Jones; Reverend Murrell; Dr. Reed) may be used in the description field but not as the authoritative version in this or the creator or people_represented fields.
  • Enter corporate names in full, direct form.
