Amelia Earhart Quick Bio

Amelia Earhart was born in July 24, 1897 in Atchison, Kansas. In 1923, Earhart, known as "Lady Lindy,"because of her record-breaking aviation career. She became the 16th woman to be given a pilot's license. She had several important flights, becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean in 1928, as well as the first person to fly over both the Atlantic and Pacific. In 1937, she mysteriously disappeared, some might also say died, while trying to fly around the globe with her Lockheed Electra from the equator. Since then, several theories have formed regarding Earhart's last days, many of which have been connected to various artifacts that have been found on Pacific islands—including clothing, tools and, more recently, freckle cream. Earhart was legally declared dead in 1939.
