I have been working on the Trixi Schuba article at the English-language Wikipedia for awhile, pulling together sources. I could use some help in two areas.

First, I've glossed over the compulsory figures controversies of the time due to the lack of overt sources explaining causes and effects that I could find. While we all know what happened and why (and it is indeed very well explained in the Janet Lynn and Karen Magnussen articles at Wiki), I need documentation or else it will just be a lot of say-so. I think such information would also be important for the compulsory figures article since that has little info on why that discipline declined in importance and eventually dropped.

If anyone could link me to reputable sources or suggest offline books, I would greatly appreciate it.

Second, I need a picture of Trixi. Sure, there are plenty of images online, but Wikipedia demands that images posted in an article be in the public domain and that the fact it is so be documented to avoid controversy. If anyone here knows where I might find such a picture, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks for your attention.

I have, for an image. Her website is handled by an agency that handles that kind of thing for people like Trixi. I had a brief email exchange with a gentleman from the agency. He came off as very nice and sent along two images he said they give out to the press, but when I emailed back about any copyright issues, he never got back to me.
