Smallchief or Little Chief are family names dating from 1825 when an American Indian ancestor of that title signed a treaty with the United States. I create content about the history of the Indians of the Americas and the Europeans who encountered them, World War II resistance movements, agriculture, conservation and protected areas, the Vietnam War, missionaries, refugees, and women's soccer. I also have a statistical bent and create lists with socio-economic and geographic data. My editing focuses on obscure and neglected topics. I rarely edit articles about current events. Technologically speaking, I am rushing headlong into the 15th century -- and not disposed to attempt a great leap forward.

The most viewed article I have created is List of snowiest places in the United States by state with an average of 478 views per day. The least viewed article I have created is China Centenary Missionary Conference with a rock-bottom average of 0.5 views per day. So be it. Perhaps the article to which I contributed with the fewest views is Cayetano Pignatelli, 3rd Marquis of Rubi with 0.20 views per day. That's a mouthful of a title, so I changed it to his better known name of Marqués de Rubí, expanded the article, and added a few links. I anticipate more views in the future. It'll be interesting to see if that happens.

For fantastic work creating Battle of Cottonwood which I just cleared through AfC. But it could have been awarded for any of dozens of other excellent articles, I think. Chiswick Chap (talk) 16:45, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
