Amelia Earhart...flew planes and broke records, taught at Purdue University ( where they built her her own runway!) and guess what she taught?...women's studies!  WAY before anyone else had even thought of it!  Kudos to Purdue University for their forward thinking!, She wrote numerous  books about her flights thst were published by her husband M. Putnam of Putnam Books, designed clothing for Abercrombie and Fitch! She was an adventurer in every sense of the word!
