“DALLAS, TEXAS: Heritage Galleries & Auctioneers (HG&A) will offer several intriguing personal items that once belonged to famed aviatrix Amelia Earhart in their upcoming Political Memorabilia & Americana Auction, to be held on December 15 & 16, 2005 in Dallas, Texas.
“Amelia Earhart was a pioneer in the field of women’s aviation,” said Tom Slater, Director of Political Memorabilia & Americana for HG&A. “She entered the field of aviation at a time when it was considered a ‘men’s only’ affair, and quickly made her mark. Of course, her fame grew exponentially after her last fateful flight, in which she disappeared over the Pacific Ocean on July 3, 1937 during her attempt to become the first woman to circumnavigate the globe. Today, the name Amelia Earhart is synonymous with not only aviation and flying, but with courage and daring.”
