discovered this twitter thread via the ny times cooking newsletter, about a writer trying to identify a person in a photograph taken at the 1971 International Conference on Biology of Whales. jacey fortin wrote about the quest, and the identified woman, sheila minor huff, for the times:

She [Huff] said she was not too bothered about going unnamed in the 1971 snapshot.

“It’s kind of like, no big deal,” she said. “When I try to do good, when I try and add back to this wonderful earth that we have, when I try to protect it, does it matter that anybody knows my name?”
