Historical Tidbit: Amelia Earhart & Eleanor Roosevelt

April 1933:  Amelia Earhart attended a black tie at the White House.  After dinner, Amelia and Eleanor Roosevelt took a midnight flight from Washington to Baltimore — in their formal attire.  Eleanor wanted to take flying lessons from Amelia, but the President vetoed the request.
