EARHART, Amelia Mary
Two years later Earhart accepted an invitation to speak at DUBUQUE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL about her record-setting first solo flight on January 11-12, 1935, between Honolulu, Hawaii, to California. Two years after that speech she disappeared near Howland Island in the Central Pacific. She was attempting a round-the-world flight and, it has been rumored, an intelligence gathering mission for the military.
