‘Iolani School librarian seeks owner of mystery photos

  • COURTESY LINDA RESER

    ‘Iolani School librarian Linda Reser is trying to find the owner of a photo — one is seen above — she found in a stack of books.

When ‘Iolani School librarian Linda Reser was helping to sort donations for the school’s Family Fair, she came upon a series of eight portraits stuck amid a stack of books. Librarians like to put things where they belong, and Reser has spent the last several months trying to find the owner of the photos so she can return them.

She sent scans of the photos around the school community. No one recognized the young woman in the picture, although many people thought it was ‘Iolani history teacher Rhonda Nagao. (It’s not Rhonda Nagao.) There’s no name or other clues written on the photos.

“I really want to get them back to the owner because these photos appear to be precious,” Reser said.

  • Badly written article. The title says photo, but there are actually 8 photos. The photo that accompanies it isn’t labeled…can’t tell if that’s the mystery photo or if it’s the librarian.

  • Geezus, who wrote this confusing article…..is the above photo of Linda Reser or of one of the 8 unidentified photos……..why can’t all 8 photos be published so people can see who they are and might recognize one of them… “found in a stack of books” what the heck???? Is the writer of this column part of the S-A staff or Iolani?????

  • Maybe the girl in the pic doesn’t want to be found. She doesn’t look the same anymore. Same thing happened to Bette Page. When I was young these pictures were standard fare. Sit upright and smile into the Hasselblads. Every one of them were the same thing. Then something happened that changed the direction of my adult life forever. Hugh Hefner published his first edition of Playboy with Marilyn Monroe. Born at the right time.
