Introduction of George P. Putnam
Amelia Earhart and George P. Putnam were pioneers in the field of aviation and helped shape our modern world. Earhart was a pioneer not only for women but also for her time in general, as she broke many barriers when it came to flying. George P. Putnam helped her achieve this by publishing her books and helping her travel around the world while promoting aviation along the way.
A brief history of Amelia Earhart and George P. Putnam
Amelia Earhart was an American aviation pioneer and author. She was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
George Palmer Putnam was an American publisher, who founded the publishing house of G. P. Putnam’s Sons in 1838, with his brother John Wiley Putnam and Henry Varnum Poor (the son of David Hale).
Amelia Earhart was born in Atchison, Kansas on July 24th 1897. She grew up in a wealthy family and was the second child of five girls; her brother was two years older than her. Her parents were Samuel and Amy Otis Earhart who were wealthy individuals who owned one of the first automobiles in Atchison, Kansas.
Amelia loved to read books about aviation as a kid, so she decided at an early age that she wanted to become a pilot when she grew up (Folkart). George P. Putnam was born on December 10th 1891 in New York City where George P. Putnam attended Columbia University where George P. Putnam earned his Bachelor’s degree before going on to Harvard Law School where he earned his law degree (Folkart).
When women were not allowed to fly (George P. Putnam)
Women were not allowed to fly, or vote, or own property. They weren’t even allowed to drive until they got their driver’s licenses in 1912 and 1915 respectively. So why did Earhart choose aviation as her career?
She was inspired by Amelia Van Buren (herself an early female pilot), who encouraged her daughter’s interest in flying after she saw a plane at an airshow as a young girl. Earhart also claimed that she wanted to be like Charles Lindbergh–a man who had achieved great things but was still treated as a hero by society at large despite being married with children and having been born into wealth
The disappearance of Amelia Earhart (George P. Putnam)
Amelia Earhart was a pioneering aviator who flew the Atlantic Ocean in 1932. In 1937, she embarked on another flight–this time across the Pacific Ocean. As she neared her destination in Howland Island, her plane disappeared from view and no one has seen or heard from her since.
Earhart’s disappearance is one of history’s greatest mysteries and continues to fascinate people today.
They didn’t give up on their dreams, even when the odds were against them.
Amelia Earhart and George P. Putnam were pioneers of flight. They didn’t give up on their dreams, even when the odds were against them. They both had courage, determination and a passion for what they did.
Earhart was born on July 24th 1897 in Atchison Kansas. She was raised by her mother after her father left them when she was 6 years old. Her family moved to California where Amelia attended high school at Berkeley Prep School for girls in Oakland California before attending Columbia University in New York City where she studied political science along with other subjects such as history and literature.
But soon realized that flying was her true passion so instead decided to quit university altogether so she could pursue flying lessons instead which eventually led up until today where we now see thousands upon thousands of people around the world who share our same interests as well!
Amelia Earhart and George P. Putnam were pioneers in aviation, both of whom were the first women to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Their story is inspiring and shows us that no matter what obstacles may be thrown at us, if we are persistent enough in achieving our goals then success will eventually follow.
