If you (BarkingMatt) think it's odd, it must be odd. :-) I'll file a bug report. As for voting, I don't feel terrible about voting for its removal since she has other photos, and since it got removed from Wikipedia on license grounds. Still, might be good not to remove it before the staff take a look.

P.s.: not sure how to vote on this one since it's now also flagged for the Lois Lowry page.

To clarify: it seems buggy that apparently a single image is being used across multiple author pages (and multiple times on one of them) and that flagging it in one place flags it everywhere. Never seen that happen before.

How odd.

I flagged this image because it was also showing up twice on the http://www.librarything.com/author/mdcarleisdorferphd page. Is this some kind of bug?

Interesting, a picture if Paul Macauley on the page belonging to Martin H. Greenberg!

This is actually a photo of Elias Cornelius Boudinot (1835-1890), not of the Cherokee editor Elias Boudinot (ca. 1803-1839).

Sorry, my mistake then. I didn't realise you could have more than one author on an author profile page.

It's a photograph of Joe Hill (2), who died pre-1923.
Thanks so much for Freedom and Necessity. I tried to read it when I was in high school (too early) and had forgotten all about it--I think I will love it now!
