Amelia Earhart "A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves." ~ Amelia Earhart http://www.elephantjournal.com/2012/06/qotd-via-amelia-earhart/
Amelia Earhart married George Putnam on February 7, 1931. Earhart's ideas on marriage were liberal for the time as she believed in equal responsibilities for both "breadwinners" and pointedly kept her own name rather than being referred to as Mrs. Putnam. When The New York Times, per the rules of its stylebook, insisted on referring to her as Mrs. Putnam, she laughed it off. GP also learned quite soon that he would be called "Mr. Earhart."[
Aviator Amelia Earhart was born on July 24, 1897, in Atchison, Kansas. On May 15, 1923, Amelia Earhart became the 16th woman to be issued a pilot's license. She had several notable flights and became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic in 1928, and the first person to have flown both oceans. In 1937, she mysteriously disappeared while trying to circumnavigate the globe from the equator.
