Today I catalogued a DVD which chronicles the life’s work of Bill Cunningham, the New York Times photographer. When searching for copy I noticed that many different libraries are using the incorrect name authority for him.
I have seen the prevalent use of two incorrect name authorities:
Cunningham, Bill, 1928- and
Cunningham, Bill (William J.) 1929-
as well as the correct name authority: Cunningham, William J.
