April 2014: Announcing our 17th Lecture “When Amelia Came to Michigan”: This is the real life story of Amelia Earhart’s adventures in Michigan. Our many years of research indicates she was here more than 25 times promoting the aviation industry and opportunities for women in this field. Our lecture and visual presentation begins with her childhood at the turn of the century, her family life and education, early flying experiences, the world records and her 8 years of adventures in Michigan. Over a 10 year period, we collected Michigan newspaper articles about Amelia, also hundred’s of photographs, old film footage, plus the music from the 1920’s and 30’s. This was the era of the Jazz Age, the Charleston, Foxtrot, Quick Time, and Swing. Download the .pdf document here.
