Amelia Earhart's Personal Collection

Amelia Earthart trans-Atlantic flight cover

First Amelia Earthart cover

November 12, 2007 - September 21, 2013

Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean, was an avid stamp and cover collector. On view were key pieces from her collection, including photographs and stamps commemorating her flights. She often flew signed pieces of mail that were then sold to philatelists to support her endeavors.
