That sounds like a situation where you would use the putative "citation" 
microformat which will hopefully include an "author" or "creator" 
property, utilising hCard.

In turn, such hCards could then use the proposed "definitive hCard", 
"more-detailed hCard" or "parent hCard" property (perhaps 
rel="expansion") to indicate the page 0or page-fragment, using an ID) on 
which your definitive biography of the author resides.
