Can you identify the woman in this photo?
The Library of Congress is asking for help to identify mystery women in photos from the Smithsonian’s Science Service archives. From their blog:
Back in 2009, we asked for you to help us learn more about some of the mystery women in our Science Service collections, and boy did you deliver! You provided additional background information for thirteen women posted to the Flickr Commons that year, and in one particularly unique example, you started the chain of events that not only helped us identify scientific illustrator Elizabeth Sabin Goodwin, but also eventually meet Ms. Goodwin’s granddaughter and discover other drawings by Goodwin in our collections.
If you think you can help the Library of Congress, please visit their photos on Flickr and leave a comment.
