Edith Shain has died. She was 92. She worked at Doctor's Hospital in New York City during World War II, but you probably only knew her as an anonymous nurse.
In the 1970s, Shain wrote to Alfred Eisenstaedt,
claiming to be the nurse in the picture. The search for the sailor was much more difficult--eleven men claimed to be the one in the photograph, but in 2007
a forensic artist at the Houston Police Department determined Glenn McDuffie was the sailor.
