comment "Note for SAWS: we can use Actor to refer to any living being (not necessarily a person, not necessarily still alive) who is identified/named/referred to within a linguistic object, though we may wish to use a more specific class such as Person, AttributedAuthor, Scribe etc." (en)
comment "Scope note:
This class comprises people, either individually or in groups, who have the potential to perform intentional actions for which they can be held responsible.
The CRM does not attempt to model the inadvertent actions of such actors. Individual people should be documented as instances of E21 Person, whereas groups should be documented as instances of either E74 Group or its subclass E40 Legal Body.
- London and Continental Railways (E40)
- the Governor of the Bank of England in 1975 (E21)
- Sir Ian McKellan (E21)" (en)
