Photo of Mrs. Mildred L. Thomas and Dr. S. E. Gould
Somebody sent me a message a month or so back that many of the photo link pictures were missing when they clicked on them. My first reaction was to respond, "Then don't click them!" but thought better of the matter. Seeing as I'm lazy and have lost most of my will to sort through the maze of information on this blog I decided to just re-post any pictures I come across.
This one is of Mrs. Mildred L. Thomas and Dr. S. E. Gould (his name was Sylvester). The fact that I can't find the back side of the photo in my files kind of defeats the whole purpose of posting the photo but maybe it'll jog somebody's memory and they can inform us of the importance of these two besides the scant information I have.
Namely, that Gould did a study in 1954 and found that 16% of the population was annually sickened by pork. Also papers on Trichinella spiralis in piggies, Trichinosis in swine from irradiated larvae, Leiomyosarcome of the Duodenum and many other interesting papers.
And the photo has re-appeared on eBay for sale. Here's the obverse:
