The caption at this range of numbers no longer reflects the current name 
of the University. According to the NAR (n  85086716), the University 
resumed its original name (Universita?t Leipzig) in April of 1991. So, 
the caption could be changed to "Formerly Karl-Marx-Universita?t 
Leipzig". However, it was also formerly known as "Universita?t Leipzig" 
until 1953, so that caption wouldn't be entirely accurate either. I'm 
not aware of any precedent for this kind of caption change, so I didn't 
submit a proposal. What would be the best way to rectify this?

Thank you,

"Those who need structured and granular data and the precise retrieval that results from it to carry out research and scholarship may constitute an elite minority rather than most of the people of the world (sadly), but that talented and intelligent minority is an important one for the cultural and technological advancement of humanity. It is even possible that if we did a better job of providing access to such data, we might enable the enlargement of that minority."
