But I'm neutral here, the approach that some advocates is original and refreshing in a sense. (and I'm also neutral because I'm not in charge of doing the work ).

If it were to be done at all, I would have preferred to see such information in the separate leader list PDF.
I see nothing in it but added clutter and time wasted on something that is, at most, peripheral.

Thomas Jonathan Jackson, born January 21, 1824, in Clarksburg, Virginia. Orphaned at the age of seven, Jackson was accepted to West Point in 1842 where, despite the inadequacy of his early education, he graduated 17th in a class of 59. A second lieutenant in the 1st US Artillery Regiment at the outbreak of the Mexican-American War, Jackson fought with distinction in the assault on Chaultepec and the siege of Veracruz, earning a field promotion to the brevet rank of major. In 1851, he accepted a teaching position at the Virginia Military Institute, where he was a brilliant, but unpopular, professor. Students mocked his apparently stern, religious nature and eccentric traits. In 1856, a group of alumni sought to have Jackson removed from his position.
