Amelia is the first woman to fly the Atlantic...

Item # 652647

June 25, 1928

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 25, 1928 

* Woman aviator Amelia Earhart makes history
* Flight across the Atlantic Ocean
* Airplane "Friendship"

Page 23 has one column headings: " MISS EARHART SLIPS FROM HOST TO FLY" "Eager for the Air, She Takes Off at Croydon, Handling Controls Herself" and more. (see) Coverage on Amelia Earhart being the guest of honor in England just after her famous flight across the Atlantic Ocean. Interesting report here as she wanted to prove to the public that she could fly a airplane herself.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, rag edition in very nice condition.

Note: While the major historic events in Amelia Earhart's life can be read about through multiple venues (books, newspapers, magazines, etc.), many of the more obscure events can only be found within a handful (at most) of daily newspapers of her day. Yet, it is these reports which add color to one of the most beloved personalities of the 20th century. Thankfully, the New York Times was one of the few publications which emphasized such reports.
