women in history ♦ amelia earhart
born july 24, 1897 in atchison, kansas — disappeared july 2, 1937
Amelia Mary Earhart, fondly known as “Lady Lindy,” spent her childhood with her grandparents in an upper-middle class household. She became, after deciding to do so after a ten-minute flight in 1920, the 16th woman to be issued a pilot’s license in 1923. She had several notable 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. She wrote books about her flying experiences, helped forming an organization for female pilots, The Ninety-Nines, became a faculty member at Purdue University to counsel women on careers and was a member of the National Women’s Party.
In 1937, she mysteriously disappeared while trying to circumnavigate the globe 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. Earhart was legally declared dead in 1939.

"I like to report four stowaways, Captain."
"How do you know there is four?"
"Why, they’re singing Sweet Adeline."
Now that’s a great combination for you…it barreled right into my mind.

Winter continues, now with sledding and snowmen! The solders in the photo above the snowmen are posing for their snow-sculpted counterparts below.
Also note that in the photo of the trees, there is a man climbing a ladder to a hidden lookout near their tops. Awesome!
