Heloisa Alberto Torres (1895-1977) is widely recognized in corridor talk as an important persona in the tradition of the history of our discipline but hardly mentioned in our academic work. Did she really contributed to the building up of Anthropology in Brazil? In an attempt to answer this question, I hope also to persuade young investigators to do research in the few archives we have left and to pursuit many other personae we usually do not take as part of our history.
