American aviator Amelia Earhart's courageous exploits and spirited personality made her an international celebrity. Her dazzling achievements include becoming the first woman to cross the Atlantic ocean by airplane (1928) and the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic (1932). She set numerous speed and altitude records before disappearing mysteriously in 1937 during an attempted around-the-world flight. Leslie Goddard's presentation reviews Amelia Earhart's upbringing, the records she broke, and her tireless work to promote opportunities for women.
Leslie Goddard earned her PhD from Northwestern University in an interdisciplinary field of study that covered US history, women's studies, and theater. An award winning scholar, Goddard also has extensive experience in public programs which includes lectures at Chicago area museums and historical societies, civic organizations, schools, and retirement homes.
