Amelia Earhart and the Talon Zipper

Dean Dillopolis, People Historian

We love a topic that is still in the news!  The International Group for Historical Aircraft Recovery is trying to find out if an old zipper belongs to Amelia Earhart.  Oh yeah, they found the zipper on Nikumaroro.  Oh yeah, Nikumaroro is a tiny atoll in the Pacific Ocean.  It would have been in Amelia Earhart’s flight path when she vanished.  Amazing.  The story is here.  (Hint, click the entire sentence.)

The company that made the zipper, Talon, has gone through many changes but still exists today.
