Before her disappearance, Amelia Earhart was one of the most famous women in America. She had set many flight records, including becoming the first woman to fly solo across both the Atlantic Ocean (in 1932) and the Pacific Ocean (in 1935). She also was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic in a multi-person plane, making the crossing in 1928 with pilot Wilmer Stultz and Lou Gordon. She and her navigator, Fred Noonan, disappeared near Howland Island in the South Pacific on July 2, 1937, on one of the last legs of their around-the-world flight. Despite extensive searches at the time (and in the years since), no clear evidence has ever been found of Amelia Earhart, Fred Noonan, or their plane. The most well known group searching for Earhart's plane is The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR), a non-profit organization founded in 1985. She authored the books 20 Hours, 40 Minutes (1928, about her first trans-Atlantic flight) and The Fun of It (1932)..............THIS PHOTO--HAS BEEN SIGNED BY AMELIA EARHART WITH A FOUNTAIN PEN IN BROWN TO A SMARTLY MOUNTED SIGNATURE SLIP ON THE FRONT.
