Did Amelia Earhart Survive?

Dorothy Duckinsie, Invention / Things Historian

One of the crazier theories is that Amelia Earhart survived her flight and returned to society under a different identity.  Joe Klass published a book in 1970 stating that Amelia Earhart lived and changed her name to Irene Craigmile Bolam.  Bolam filed a lawsuit and the book was taken off bookshelves.  This theory has been rejected and there have even been people who knew both Earhart and Bolam.  Interestingly enough, Bolam did have her pilot’s license.
