Raymond Boyce was one of the first pioneers of the relational database and a co-developer of SQL, yet it is almost impossible to find any pictures of him: https://www.google.com/search?q=raymond+f+boyce&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwiBrvvZwdTqAhXlgHMKHUyTDPIQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=raymond+f+boyce&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQAzIECCMQJzIECCMQJzICCAAyBggAEAcQHjIECAAQGDIECAAQGDIECAAQGFCPLVj_WGC5WWgAcAB4AIABMIgBMJIBATGYAQCgAQGqAQtnd3Mtd2l6LWltZ8ABAQ&sclient=img&ei=1LcRX4F05YHOA8ymspAP&bih=937&biw=1920&rlz=1C1CHBF_enGB859GB859
All the results show a man who seems to be about 60+ years old but Boyce died at the age of 27. The only image that I could find of him was in this slideshow on Database Management Systems: https://slideplayer.com/slide/13584514/
The picture quality looks like in could be from the 70s (when Boyce was in his 20s) and the person in the photo looks to be roughly the same age. But a google search for similar images produces absolutely nothing.
I get that it might be difficult to find pictures of somebody from the 70s who died before they became truly famous. But co-founding SQL is a big deal. Even if there are reasonable answers for...
- Why are there no pictures of Raymond Boyce? OR
- Where on earth did the producers of that slideshow get that other image?
... I haven't been able to derive any sensible answers to the strangest question ...
- How come they are no threads on forums asking where they can get a genuine picture of him?
This is honestly the first question I've typed into google in years that nobody else has asked before, or something similar. Any thoughts?
