56 pages of files copied from FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., covering Amelia Earhart. Amelia Earhart was an aviatrix who disappeared July 1937 in the Pacific Ocean while on a highly publicized world flight attempt. The FBI never investigated her disappearance. The records generally consist of correspondence from individuals speculating about her fate. Accounts of solicitations of funds from bureau personnel for the Amelia Earhart Foundation. In 1990, the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery submitted a navigator's bookcase to the FBI Laboratory for examination. This item was suspected of having been part of Ms. Earhart's lost aircraft. Various technical analyses were conducted and nothing was found which would disqualify the artifact as having come from the Earhart aircraft.
