Do you know her?

I am trying to identify a woman from a cookbook. "The only thing I know about her is two pictures from a cookbook printed by the Maryland Seafood Marketing Authority (Department of Economic and Community Management) in the mid-1970s."

"There's a picture of her on the second page, where she's standing ankle deep in the ocean, holding a big net and looking for fish or oysters or some goddamn thing. Before the recipe "Basic baked fish - tender and moist" there's a picture of her holding a spear, looking out at the ocean on a rock. I think she's wearing high heels for some reason? And at the intro to the chapter on Oysters and Clams, there's a night-time picture of her sitting next to a bonfire. And actually I just realized that on the back cover, she's sitting on the shore with the spear. So I guess its four pictures? Anyway, I found the sequel to this cookbook, and there are no pictures of her. Only pictures of cooked shellfish. So someone must have complained about her stealing the show?"
