She went to College of Fine Arts.
In , Earhart enrolled in medical studies at Columbia University. She quit a year later to be with her parents, who had reunited in California. It was only 10 minutes, but when she landed she knew she had to learn to fly.
Working at a variety of jobs, from photographer to truck driver, she earned enough money to take flying lessons from pioneer female aviator Anita "Neta" Snook. Earhart immersed herself in learning to fly. She read everything she could find on flying and spent much of her time at the airfield. She cropped her hair short, in the style of other women aviators. Worried what the other, more experienced pilots might think of her, she even slept in her new leather jacket for three nights to give it a more "worn" look.
In the summer of , Earhart purchased a second-hand Kinner Airster biplane painted bright yellow. She nicknamed it "The Canary," and set out to make a name for herself in aviation. On October 22, , Earhart flew her plane to 14, feet — the world altitude record for female pilots. On May 15, , Earhart became the 16th woman to be issued a pilot's license by the world governing body for aeronautics, The Federation Aeronautique.
Throughout this period, the Earhart family lived mostly on an inheritance from Amy's mother's estate. Amy administered the funds but, by , the money had run out. With no immediate prospects of making a living flying, Earhart sold her plane. Following her parents' divorce, she and her mother set out on a trip across the country starting in California and ending up in Boston. In she again enrolled in Columbia University but was forced to abandon her studies due to limited finances.
Earhart found employment first as a teacher, then as a social worker. Earhart gradually got back into aviation in , becoming a member of the American Aeronautical Society's Boston chapter. She also invested a small amount of money in the Dennison Airport in Massachusetts, acted as a sales representative for Kinner airplanes in the Boston area.
As she wrote articles promoting flying in the local newspaper, she began to develop a following as a local celebrity. Amelia Earhart Photo: Railey, a pilot and publicity man, asking her, "Would you like to fly the Atlantic? Soon she was selected to be the first woman on a transatlantic flight The wisdom at the time was that such a flight was too dangerous for a woman to conduct herself.
Approximately 20 hours and 40 minutes later, they touched down at Burry Point, Wales, in the United Kingdom. Due to the weather, Stultz did all the flying. Even though this was the agreed upon arrangement, Earhart later confided that she felt she "was just baggage, like a sack of potatoes.
Earhart actively became involved in the promotions, especially with women's fashions. For years she had sewn her own clothes, and now she contributed her input to a new line of women's fashion that embodied a sleek and purposeful, yet feminine, look. Through her celebrity endorsements, Earhart gained notoriety and acceptance in the public eye. She accepted a position as associate editor at Cosmopolitan magazine, using the media outlet to campaign for commercial air travel.
Yet deep inside, Earhart harbored a burning desire to distinguish herself as different from the rest of the world. She was an intelligent and competent pilot who never panicked or lost her nerve, but she was not a brilliant aviator. Her skills kept pace with aviation during the first decade of the century but, as technology moved forward with sophisticated radio and navigation equipment, Earhart continued to fly by instinct.
She recognized her limitations and continuously worked to improve her skills, but the constant promotion and touring never gave her the time she needed to catch up.
Recognizing the power of her celebrity, she strove to be an example of courage, intelligence and self-reliance. She hoped her influence would help topple negative stereotypes about women and open doors for them in every field. Earhart set her sights on establishing herself as a respected aviator. Shortly after returning from her transatlantic flight, she set off on a successful solo flight across North America. During this time, Earhart became involved with the Ninety-Nines, an organization of female pilots advancing the cause of women in aviation.
She became the organization's first president in Before their marriage, Earhart and Putnam worked on secret plans for a solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean. By early , they had made their preparations and announced that, on the fifth anniversary of Charles Lindbergh's flight across the Atlantic, Earhart would attempt the same feat. Earhart took off in the morning from Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, with that day's copy of the local newspaper to confirm the date of the flight.
Almost immediately, the flight ran into difficulty as she encountered thick clouds and ice on the wings. After about 12 hours the conditions got worse, and the plane began to experience mechanical difficulties. She knew she wasn't going to make it to Paris as Lindbergh had, so she started looking for a new place to land. She found a pasture just outside the small village of Culmore, in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, and successfully landed.
On May 22, , Earhart made an appearance at the Hanworth Airfield in London, where she received a warm welcome from local residents. Earhart's flight established her as an international hero. Other Notable Flights Earhart made a solo trip from Honolulu, Hawaii, to Oakland, California, establishing her as the first woman — as well as the first person — to fly both across the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans.
Between and , Earhart set seven women's speed and distance aviation records in a variety of aircraft. In , Earhart joined the faculty at Purdue University as a female career consultant and technical advisor to the Department of Aeronautics, and she began to contemplate one last fight to circle the world.
Earhart Marriage and Divorce On February 7, , Earhart married George Putnam, the publisher of her autobiography, in his mother's home in Connecticut. Putnam had already published several writings by Charles Lindbergh when he saw Earhart's transatlantic flight as a bestselling story with Earhart as the star. Putnam, who was married to Crayola heiress Dorothy Binney Putnam, invited Earhart to move into their Connecticut home to work on her book. Earhart became close friends with Dorothy Putnam, but rumors surfaced about an affair between Earhart and Putnam, who both insisted the early part of their relationship was strictly professional.
Unhappy in her marriage, Dorothy was also having an affair with her son's tutor, according to Whistled Like a Bird, a book about Dorothy Putnam by her granddaughter Sally Putnam Chapman. The Putnams divorced in Soon after their split, Putnam actively pursued Earhart, asking her to marry him on several occasions.
Earhart declined, but the couple eventually married in On the day of their wedding, Earhart wrote a letter to Putnam telling him, "I want you to understand I shall not hold you to any medieval code of faithfulness to me nor shall I consider myself bound to you similarly. Earhart purchased a Lockheed Electra LE plane and pulled together a top-rated crew of three men: Manning, who had been the captain of the President Roosevelt, which brought Earhart back from Europe in , would become Earhart's first navigator.
Noonan, who had vast experience in both marine and flight navigation, was to be the second navigator. Mantz, a Hollywood stunt pilot, was chosen to be Earhart's technical advisor. The original plan was to take off from Oakland, California, and fly west to Hawaii.
From there, the group would fly across the Pacific Ocean to Australia. Then they would cross the sub-continent of India, on to Africa, then to Florida, and back to California. On March 17, , they took off from Oakland on the first leg.
After three days, the Electra began its takeoff, but something went wrong. Earhart lost control and looped the plane on the runway. How this happened is still the subject of some controversy. Several witnesses, including an Associated Press journalist, said they saw a tire blow. Other sources, including Paul Mantz, indicated it was pilot error. Though no one was seriously hurt, the plane was severely damaged and had to be shipped back to California for extensive repairs. In the interim, Earhart and Putnam secured additional funding for a new flight.
The stress of the delay and the grueling fund-raising appearances left Earhart exhausted. By the time the plane was repaired, weather patterns and global wind changes required alterations to the flight plan. This time Earhart and her crew would fly east.
Captain Harry Manning would not join the team, due to previous commitments. Paul Mantz was also absent, reportedly due to a contract dispute. The plane flew toward Central and South America, turning east for Africa. About 22, miles of the journey had been completed. The remaining 7, miles would take place over the Pacific.
Later, Riot at this point referred to by Sam simply as "Dog" runs into Amelia's room and jumps onto the sofa next to her. When Sam comes to find him, he compliments her on the stitches she gave the dog, and then asks Amelia if she really thinks he is creepy. She points out that he dresses like either a "white supremacist" or a "drifting serial killer" and that it's creepy that he says he's "seen a lot of stitches" in his time.
Sam guesses that she too is a drifter with no one in her life, and Amelia vaguely confirms that she has recently lost someone, and guesses that Sam has, too. Sam remembers a moment with Amelia. They'd just had sex for the first time, and she told him about her husband, Don Richardson. Don died in Afghanistan, and afterwards she hadn't been able to endure everyone's pity, so she'd left her life and run.
The next morning when he woke up, she'd been leaving for work and had asked him to forget what she'd said about her husband because she didn't want him to look at her with pity. Later Sam tells her that he didn't pity her and said that when his brother died he ran, too. She'd let him into her motel room and poured him whiskey, then asked if he wanted to talk about it. He'd said yes and told her that she could talk to him about Don if she wanted. Sam remembers the day he met Amelia's father, Stan Thompson.
He and Amelia had just moved into a house together, and Stan obviously hadn't approved of him. When he'd learned that Sam was working a maintenance job at a local motel despite going to Stanford, he'd remarked that Sam seemed like a "real fixer-upper. Stan told her that she was living in a dreamworld, but his attitude to towards Sam noticeably softened.
However, later that night Amelia gets a phone call: Don is alive. After news that Don is alive, Sam struggles with what to do. He tells Amelia he thinks the right thing to do is step aside for Don to return, but that what he really wants to do is stay with her. Don turns up at a bar where Sam is having a drink. He tells Sam that he understands that part of Amelia still loves him, but that she also loves Sam, and that ultimately the decision is hers and he will respect that.
Sam returns home to tell Amelia he thinks he should leave. Current time: Sometime since he got back, Dean has changed Amelia's contact information in Sam's phone so that it corresponds with a burner phone Dean has.
Dean uses the burner phone to send a distressed text message ostensibly from Amelia to Sam, so that Sam will drop the hunt for Benny. The trick works, and Sam drives to Kermit, Texas, only to find Amelia safe and sound at home with Don.
Sam goes to a local bar and calls the phone number he has for Amelia in his phone.
