Bill Cunningham… the photographer

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.
