One of the WAVES officers in charge was Joy Bright Hancock. She served in the Navy during World War I as a Yeomanette, or Yeoman (F), and worked as a civilian for Navy aviation during the years between World War I and World War II. This portrait of her dates from 1943.
It comes from the U.S. National Archives.
