I won't get started on the general lack of love for gnomes in scenarios... Paizo did an awesome job with their backstory for them, it is a shame that the story is underutilized.
My interest was in VCs who actually give out missions.. not names in books... which was my point. Our assessment of our local community is coming in with a relatively high number of human members (perhaps a third of the total)... I'm not sure what the community is at large.. but certainly the percentage of missions given by human VCs represents something.
Obviously it is 'easiest' to write the story from the human point of view.. it is the most accessible... but not necessarily the coolest. I liked the Dwarf series I played that had a whole bunch of Dwarven motivations mixed into it. I can't remember who gave us that mission, if they were a 'friend of the Society' or an actual Dwarven VC.

This sounds about right to me. Humans in my experience are the most played race since early editions of D&D (something between 25-50% of the time feels right, though I haven't looked at some of the polling data in a while). Humans are extremely versatile, they get an extra feat at 1, an extra skill point every level, and are easily accessible. Some people almost never go outside of human (especially with the amount of lore about the different ethnic groups, some even focus a favorite ethnicity). Some players play a lot of races, and some focus on other races.

I do think more non-human VCs (and other mission givers, as there is at least one who has been used a couple of times that isn't a VC) would at least give some players more accessible memories of other races in society though.

They are blind in the dark. I believe the sage Dilberts advice has been followed, and they've been promoted to positions where they will do the least harm walking into things.

Brilliant idea! Perhaps they should be covered in barbeque sauce to hide their scent and make the sound of wounded prey to avoid being detected.

One of the mysteries I'll never understand is why they haven't gone extinct... must be their fecundity.

The tables where I go for PFS generally have one token human, with the rest taking up just about every other legal race. We even have a guy with an Oread from a boon.

The dwarf in Tymon is Holgarin Smine, though I believe he's only a Venture Lieutenant. He would probably be a bad Venture Captain since he actually cares about his agents, gives them useful information, and gives special rewards for successfully completing missions. :-)

Quite simply, nothing that hides from the light has been capable of killing us.

Venture Lieutenant is not actually a rank used in Golarion. Venture Captain Smine is indeed his title.
