Amelia Earhart

Mrs. Amelia Earhart Putnam pictured beside a likeness of herself executed by George Conlon, an American sculptor now living in Paris in an undated photo. The bust which is remarkable facsimile of the transatlantic flier was modeled almost entirely with the aid of photographs because of the inability of the flier to devote most of her time while in Paris to the sittings.

About this blog

"Tales from the Morgue" is a way for the Star to share stories from the treasure trove of information held in its old files.

Johanna Eubank, aka the Morgue Lady, was a research assistant in the Star Library — also known as News and Research Services — for 18 years before becoming an online content producer. She has had her share of sneezing fits after digging into dusty old files, so she's sure to find a few old stories to re-examine.
