Things of Science #265 — Taste

Ruby Yoshioka

Sometime around the middle of 1962, the name Ruby Yoshioka appears in a Things of Science booklet. She is, at that time, credited “Production by…”. In the decades that follow, her name is associated with each release of Things of Science — through, I think, their strongest years.

Googling around I found her obituary:
