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

Item # 663940

June 23, 1928

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 23, 1928 

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

Page 3 has one column headings: "MISS EARHART GOES TO TOYNBEE HALL" "Cheers Great Her at Noted Settlement House in Slums of London" and more. (see) Coverage on Amelia Earhart being the guest of honor in England just after her famous flight across the Atlantic Ocean.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 32 pages, a few small binding slits along the spine, generally nice.

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.
