Tidbits of Wisdom
In 1876, Elizabeth Bragg became the first woman to receive a bachelor's degree in engineering. She earned her degree in civil engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, but she never worked as a professional engineer. She was a stay-at-home wife and mother.
Amelia Mary Earhart was an American aviation pioneer and author. She was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She received the United States Distinguished Flying Cross for this accomplishment.
Amelia attempted to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937 in a Purdue-funded Lockheed Model 10-E Electra. She and navigator Fred Noonan disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island.
We conduct interviews with women who have made an extraordinary difference in their communities. Do you know a dedicated humanitarian, entrepreneur or volunteer? Let us know!
Interviews are posted in our OPEN BOOK section. See contact information below.
