9/21/09: Amelia Earhart

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Next month, a new feature film starring Hilary Swank chronicles the life and mysterious death of aviator Amelia Earhart. More than 70 years after her disappearance flying over the Pacific, Earhart still appeals to the imagination - and Monday, we'll try to get at why. We'll be joined by historian Susan Ware, who says Earhart's charm, spirit and individualism made her a role model then and now.
