#3. Amelia Earhart
by Barbara J. Feldman
Amelia Earhart Printable (** for premium members only)
Amelia Mary Earhart, the first women to fly solo across the Atlantic, was born July 24, 1897 at her grandparents’ home in Atchison, Kansas. Despite her many pioneering achievements, she is best known for her tragic disappearance over the Pacific on July 2, 1937, halfway to her goal of circling the globe. Like many today, Earhart believed that technology would open new worlds for women.
Amelia Earhart Biography
In 1920, Earhart flew in an open cockpit biplane at an aerial meet in Long Beach, California. “As soon as we had left the ground I knew I myself had to fly.” She soon began lessons with another women pilot, Anita “Neta” Snook, in a restored Canadian training plane. “On April 27, 1926, her life was to change forever . . . a phone call from Captain H.H. Railey asked, ‘How would you like to be the first woman to fly across the Atlantic?’” This detailed biography, neatly organized into Early Years, Celebrity and Last Flight, is a terrific resource for school reports.
Official Amelia Earhart Site
Created on behalf of Earhart’s family, this official site is excellent in content, design, and navigation, earning my pick of the day accolade. Of course there is an Earhart biography, but don’t stop there. Other highlights include a nice collection of quotes (“Courage is the price that Life exacts for granting peace.” ), a photo gallery, and screensavers and wallpaper (listed under Downloads.)
Two Legends of Aviation
This year marks the seventy-seventh anniversary of Charles Lindbergh’s solo flight across the Atlantic and the sixty-seventh anniversary of Earhart’s disappearance over the Pacific ocean during her attempt to fly around the world. This World Book special feature includes biographies of Lindbergh and Earhart from the current encyclopedia, along with “articles of the day concerning the fliers’ exploits.”
