She signs the program and menu from a 1930 Aviation Nite dinner in Baltimore, a menu designed in the form of her aircraft.
Program/Menu signed: "Amelia Earhart". Shaped like her airplane and numbered "46397", 10½-inches long, for "Aviation Nite/Traffic Club/of/Baltimore/Dinner Dance/March 4th, 1930/Lord Baltimore Hotel". A list of "Honored Guests" is affixed on verso. Amelia Earhart (1897-1937?), with Wilman Stutz and Louis Gordon, flew from Trepassy Bay, Newfoundland to Burry Port, Wales (June 17-18, 1928) to become the first woman to cross the Atlantic by air. Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic when she flew from Harbor Grace, Newfoundland to Londonderry, Ireland on May 20-21, 1932, exactly five years after Lindbergh accomplished a similar feat from New York to Paris. In 1937, Earhart was lost over the Pacific in an attempted around-the-world flight. Worn at center fold. Lightly soiled and creased.
