The Route of Amelia Earhart

Barley Hugg, Location Historian

I want to spend some time talking about Earhart’s route.  I’ll talk a bit about the places she flew to.  How are they different from one another and what may be different about the location today.  Of course I’ll also talk about the food.  Come on, you knew I would.  Before I get on to that you need to check out this map from Purdue University’s Amelia Earhart collection.  This map shows her route.  It is incredible.  A great resource.  Scroll at the bottom to see the whole map.  You can also click on the city names to find out more and see pictures of Earhart from that city.  Seriously, “awesome” is the word that comes to mind.  Here is the link.
