REALLY cool story about how an Illustrator working on a children’s book took to Twitter to help identify the only woman at the 1971 International Conference on the Biology of Whales (who happened to also be the only person “not identified”)

Spoiler Alert – the woman (Sheila Minor Huff), ended up being really dope.

The identity of the lone woman scientist in this 1971 photo was a mystery. Then Twitter cracked the case.
