July 24, 1898: Amelia Earhart, American aviation pioneer and author (July 24, 1897; disappeared July 2, 1937) was born Amelia Mary Earhart in Atchison, Kansas. She became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic and to fly solo from Hawaii to California. Earhart was the first female to fly in an aircraft across the Atlantic Ocean and first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She received the United States Distinguished Flying Cross for this accomplishment. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots. In 1935, Earhart became a visiting faculty member at Purdue University as an advisor to aeronautical engineering and a career counselor to women students. She was also a member of the National Woman's Party and an early supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment. On July 2, 1937, in a Purdue University-funded Lockheed Model 10-E Electra, Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan were last heard from over the Pacific Ocean while attempting to make the first equatorial round-the-world flight, and disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. Fascination with her life, career, and disappearance continues to this day.
