Amelia Earhart Channeled by Karl Mollison 05Feb2019
Amelia Mary Earhart was born July 24, 189 and disappeared July 2, 1937.
She was an American aviation pioneer and author.
Earhart was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She received the United States Distinguished Flying Cross for this accomplishment. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots.
In 1935, Earhart became a visiting faculty member at Purdue University as an advisor to aeronautical engineering and a career counselor to women students. She was also a member of the National Woman’s Party and an early supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment.
During an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937 in a Purdue-funded Lockheed Model 10-E Electra, Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. Fascination with her life, career, and disappearance continues to this day.
Earhart was a widely known international celebrity during her lifetime. Her shyly charismatic appeal, independence, persistence, coolness under pressure, courage and goal- oriented career along with the circumstances of her disappearance at a comparatively early age have driven her lasting fame in popular culture. Hundreds of articles and scores of books have been written about her life, which is often cited as a motivational tale, especially for girls. Earhart is generally regarded as a feminist icon.
Earhart’s accomplishments in aviation inspired a generation of female aviators, including the more than 1,000 women pilots of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) who ferried military aircraft, towed gliders, flew target practice aircraft, and served as transport pilots during World War II.
The home where Earhart was born is now the Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum and is maintained by The Ninety-Nines, an international group of female pilots of whom Earhart was the first elected president.
Integral to formation of the questions used for today’s channeling are the significant contributions of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery aka TIGHAR and the work of Thomas King PhD author of Unrescued.
About Tom King
Thomas F. King, PhD
I’ve worked for the last 50+ year in archaeology and historic preservation, in government and in the private sector, in the United States and the Pacific Islands. I’m a reformed former U.S. government employee, now self-employed as a cultural heritage and environmental impact assessment consultant based in Silver Spring, Maryland. I work mostly with American Indian tribes in efforts to use historic preservation laws and policies to prevent the destruction of places important to them. From 1997 until 2018, I was The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery’s (TIGHAR’s) Senior Archaeologist and a member of its Board of Directors. In this role I took part in multiple research visits to Nikumaroro Atoll in Kiribati and elsewhere, testing the hypothesis that Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan wound up there after their 1937 disappearance. I’ve authored and edited textbooks, tradebooks and many journal articles about archaeology and historic preservation, and two novels about the Earhart mystery. I hold a PhD in anthropology from the University of California, Riverside. I maintain two weblogs, at https://crmplus.blogspot.com/ and https://ameliaearhartarchaeology.blogspot.com/ My books are described at https://www.amazon.com/Thomas-F.-King/e/B001IU2RWK/ref=la_B001IU2RWK_st?qid=1394198577&rh=n%3A283155%2Cp_82%3AB001IU2RWK&sort=daterank. I regularly give public lectures on the Earhart disappearance and on using U.S. law to control the destruction of historic and cultural places. Contact info: firstname.lastname@example.org
