First woman to fly the Atlantic solo June, 1932. (Amelia Earhart and Lindbergh alone have made eastward solo flights and Mollinson the Western flight) First woman to make a non-stop trans-continental flight, September, 1932, which also set long distance flight record (2400 miles) for a woman.

Overall, fine condition. Accompanied by a tattered 4½x6 sheet, written in unknown hand by someone present: "Amelia Earhart gave a kitten to the new Club house - anointed (sic) its paws with oil 'to keep it from straying.' Got a bit of oil on her beige dress and when she sat down, I heard her husband Putnam chide her for it." Fragile, chipped and torn. AMELIA EARHART's husband was GEORGE P. PUTNAM, whom she had married in 1931.
