She represented courage, independence, and the modern woman despite the fact that she simply crossed the Atlantic as a passenger. Her photogenic image and testimonials enhanced sales from automobiles to magazines to chocolate bars. In return, whether quid pro quo or cash payments, Amelia was able to finance her flying. Endorsed by Earhart is a project which documents the many endorsements Amelia made before her untimely death in 1937. The book also reflects the creativity of manufacturers during the 1930s to remain ompetitive - whether they built cars or published magazines.
