Janek, the other World Records were valid too. The problem is that the Menaul record was discovered in 1987 from Frank Zarnowski and the Thorpe's record was deleted of books.

Nestor, what about Wickholm, Nilsson, Ohlson and Klumberg? There is also conflicts!

Wieslander’s score from 1912 is higher than Wickholm’s 1914. Also Lovland’s score from 1919 is higher than Nilsson’s, Ohlson’s or Klumberg’s 1920.

Janek... the records previous to 1920 were calculated using the 1912 tables. The Nilsson, Ohlson and Klumberg's record used 1920 tables.
The Wickholm's record is inserted because his result with 1985 tables is better than Wieslander record in Stockholm.
