Terry Wallace, for whom the mineral terrywallaceite is named, is a member here and has posted his own photo in his gallery at http://www.mindat.org/user-14124.html#2
I don’t know Terry, but he probably wouldn’t mind the photo being on the mineral page. I would do it myself but I’m not sure how.
He also has a blog with some posts on silver minerals, mineral collecting, and other geology and nature subjects that are quite interesting and well written:

Haineaultite added, thanks.

Having trouble with Terrywallaceite I added the photo ID but its not showing, perhaps as there is no description about him, will look into it.

I received a message vis a vis discussion group on photos. I attach a more modern photo of Terry Wallace (me) which appropriately ages me.
