World war 2 - the women still had it! They wore army clothes, had their hair curved perfectly, red lips and posed with the duck face! And how cute their hats are!

Amelia Earhart...flew planes and broke records, taught at Purdue University ( where they built her her own runway!) and guess what she taught?...women's studies! WAY before anyone else had even thought of it! Kudos to Purdue University for their forward thinking!, She wrote numerous books about her flights thst were published by her husband M. Putnam of Putnam Books, designed clothing for Abercrombie and Fitch! She was an adventurer in every sense of the word!

In 1941, the U.S. began to form a hand-picked army to fight in Europe; its troops were composed of artists, designers, actors, meteorologists, and sound technicians, and their true mission was not to fight, but to deceive the German army. Their props were inflatable tanks and pyrotechnics; their tools camouflage, “spoof” radio plays, special effects, and sonic deception. Their last “disappearing act” was to vanish from history. Officially they were the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops.
In 1928, Aviatrix Elinor Smith, then 16, earned national recognition as the youngest pilot to receive a license from the FAA. Orville Wright signed her license. Smith is the first -- and only -- pilot to fly under all four bridges over the East River in NYC.
