This is likely him in SSDI, there are several references on the internet to the "late Norman Dodd" and that the 1982 interview was shortly before he died, but for now I'm just changing categories from possibly living people to year of death missing:

Flagged for NPOV and Notability

Before this entry was sabotaged it looked like this Governor-dodge (talk) 19:51, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

These are, at root, the same problem. I can't see any reliable sources that discuss this individual as a biographical subject. Without reliable sources, he is not notable and we can't have a NPOV article on him. A couple statements by him seem to attract a lot of conspiracy mongering attention, but not from reliable sources. Can someone produce reliable sources covering his life?

Alternatively, is there anywhere this can be merged? We don't have an article on the committee, and the congressman's bio doesn't even mention the committee. The only incoming link in article space is from United States Bullion Depository#Conspiracy theory, which shows that he held a false theory about the U.S. gold reserves. All in all, I can't see that we have a use for this article at this title. GRBerry 15:54, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Are there any other supposed problems you would like addressed? It seems to me that the user GRBerry is not that interested in actually finding any evidence, which I found in less than ten minutes, but wishes to dismiss Mr. Norman Dodd, and people interested in him, as conspiracy theorists. I find that to be slander and a violation of NPOV.
Norman Dodd can be found in the B. CARROLL REECE PAPERS housed at East Tennessee State University. An overview of these papers can be found at this link:
Congressional Bio of REECE, Brazilla Carroll, (1889 - 1961)found at the following link: "...chairman, Special Committee on Tax Exempt Foundations (Eighty-third Congress);" --Preceding unsigned comment added by MikeHovell (talk o contribs)
The Congressman's bio I was concerned about is the one here: B. Carroll Reece. It may merit expansion, which is an issue for that article.
We need more than mere existence to cover somebody. We need reliable sources that are independent and published about him. Those archives don't amount to a published source, though they do prove existence, not that it was ever in doubt. I hope that you can find some reliable, published sources. I spent time back on the 13th looking for sources, and failed to find any that meet Wikipedia's standards. If not, this article will meet the usual fate of those for which no reliable sources exist.

No reliable sources here at all. Also all the quotes from the American Historical Association's Report on the Commission on Social Studies are copyrighted material, so I am not sure if they should be here for that reason. Further reason why they should not be here is that they are all taken out of context and several of them are only partial, making it seem as though the Commission was advocating for an ominous collectivism that would crush individual liberty along with an increase in State power that would stamp out the ideals of American democracy, and also that they were at the bidding of the Carnegie Corporation when a full and careful reading of the document shows this all to be very far from the truth. I have transcribed much of the text that puts the quotes in proper context but am not sure that it would be OK to post it here because of the copyright issue.

Flagged for single source

The article relies on a single source at (talk) 21:16, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Trimmed back to a biography

This article was being used to argue that Dodd was correct - which is clearly inappropriate in a bio and indeed such pov pushing is inappropriate anywhere on Wikipedia. I ran into this article due to copyright concerns about the report which I see are also mentioned above which of course should never have been here. Dougweller (talk) 10:47, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
