Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Templates/Infoboxes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This list is part of WikiProject Biography and presents recommended biography infoboxes.

Word of caution! Certain biography articles have opposition camps on infoboxes. With the current work groups, it is generally safe, but, for instance, scientist articles can have some heated debates on these. So, if you are intending to apply one of the templates to an article about a scientist, academic, or classical composer, musician or singer, first ask on the Talk page.

In addition, other infoboxes may be available that are not listed here but recommended by a particular work group (see Category:People and person infobox templates).
