AMELIA EARHART AUTOGRAPH Signature
American pioneer aviatrix. The first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic.
Autograph signature on paper piece, measuring approx 5 x 3.75 inches. Light foxing spots, else fine.
Amelia Earhart set many aviation records but is best remembered for her solo crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in her Lockheed Vega monoplane on 20th May, 1932. Four years earlier, she had become the first woman to fly accross the Atlantic when she made the crossing with Wilmer Stultz and Louis Gordon. Amelia Earhart disappeared over the Pacific whilst attempting a circumnavigational flight round the globe in 1937. She was never found and the mystery of her disappearance has never been solved. Her early death and the fascination around her life, achievements and disappearance have ensured that her uncommon AUTOGRAPH has always been in demand.
