I have a friend who is a contractor and whose father Alfred Wood had a cabinetry and fine woodworking business in the early days on Long Island. He did restoration in churches and many old buildings. He made a carved chest for Amelia Earhart which had all the trips that she took carved in the wood. When she went down in the Pacific in 1937 Mr. Wood finished the chest with the last trip she took. It is now in the Smithsonian.

There is a song written about Amrlia that is sung by a talented bluegrass musician and I have downloaded it below. I saw her first playing in Dayton Ohio in the early 1980s

When my father was on the island of Saipan during the Second War there were reports that Earhart had come down there when the Japanese occupied the island but no trace was ever found.
