The error was introduced on 13 September 2005, by an anonymous user from an IP address allocated to Web Perception, a Californian ISP, and (currently) geolocated to Sonoma.  The change comment was:

Changes - 386BSD factual errors corrected, potentially libelous statements removed, links updated, refocus on 386BSD history, authority-386BSD authors, published works, DMR refs

The same IP address was used for a series of edits over 2005-2006, to topics including 386BSD, Lynne Jolitz, William Jolitz, and Radiocarbon Dating.

I imagine it was simply a mistake.
