Jump to: navigation, search

"The world's largest collection of Amelia Earhart papers, photos, memorabilia and artifacts":

"The Amelia Earhart collection offers a rare glimpse into the life of America's premier woman aviator. In 1928 she was the first woman to across the Atlantic. As an inspiration for women to pursue non-traditional roles, Purdue President Elliott invited Amelia Earhart to lecture at the university. Earhart became a part of Purdue and the university funded the purchase of her 'flying laboratory' that was to be used on her ill-fated last flight.

"The online collection includes more than 3,500 scans of photographs, maps, and documents relating to Earhart. Copies of the maps that were used on her last flight are available as well as photographs that she took while on the flight and mailed back to her husband. Earhart's medals are also available online. These include the U. S. Distinguished Flying Cross, the Lindbergh Medal, and the National Geographic Society Medal. An interactive map of Earhart's flight is included on the web site. New additions include personal correspondence, her marriage license and her prenuptial agreement."
