The OCLC Research WorldCat Identities project is ending. The work provided valuable insight into how to mine bibliographic data for insight into the People and Organizations that create and serve as subjects library materials. The findings demonstrated the power of data mining over the world’s largest set of bibliographic metadata and highlighted the value of collaborative collective cataloging. The WorldCat Identities data has positively impacted OCLC’s work to build the WorldCat Entities application and the 150 million Person and Work descriptions accessible through it. This work will continue to build our entity ecosystem to support the future knowledge work of librarians.

The WorldCat Identities web application will be retired and shut down in the coming months and the data is no longer being updated. The most recent version of the data is from July of 2022. As OCLC continues to build out the WorldCat Entities ecosystem, please use it as a source for persistent Person identifiers.

Legal document dated 1 January 1750 (copies of which were likely sent to multiple courthouse towns around the colony), ordering that should anyone encounter Richard Watkins, he should be immediately brought to Charleston, in order to settle his debt of 486 pounds and 13 shillings owed to Edward Fowler: "Greeting. We command you without delay to attack the Body of Richard Watkins ... of Charles Town ... Slaymaker ... so that you [may] compel him to ... appear before our Justices at our Court." Watkins' trade is described as a "Slaymaker" [the craftsman who produced the long wooden batten or slay that slid back and forth during the weaving process to beat up the weft, compact the material and press the yarn firmly into the fell of the cloth]. Verso, the earlier document of 1 January 1750, includes an inscription added, 25 April 1751, by Rawlins Lowndes (1721-1800): "I have endeavored by George Day, my Lawfull Deputy to find the Deb[to]r but Could not I therefore by him left a tran[scribed] copy of the within writ ... with a Notice thereon Indorsed at the most usual and Nortorious place of his Residence pursuant to the Act of Assembly."
