Moreover, Cook was 5 months old when a neighbor, artist Dorothy Hope Smith, drew a charcoal sketch of her that was later submitted for a contest Gerber was holding for a national marketing campaign for baby food.

The image was so popular that it was adopted as the company’s trademark in 1931 and has since been featured on all packaging and advertising.

The identity of the infant, however, was kept hidden for decades, leading to suspicions about who it was, with Humphrey Bogart and Elizabeth Taylor among the suspects.

It was eventually confirmed to be Cook, who went on to become an English teacher in Tampa, Fla., and later a mystery author, in the late 1970s.

In a 1998 interview with The Associated Press, Cook said her mother told her when she was little that she was the baby in the illustration.
