Google Celebrates Amelia Earhart's 115th Birthday with a Doodle
Amelia Earhart, born on this day 115 years ago in Atchison, Kansas, is being honored with a Google Doodle today.
More than 75 years after she went missing, Earhart's legacy remains. The aviation pioneer, who was the first female pilot to cross the Atlantic Ocean, continues to make lasting impressions on people all over the world.
CMG Worldwide's CEO Mark Roesler, said: "Amelia's career endeavors, and her image as the most renowned female aviator, personifies the spirit of adventure that is so indispensable to the American persona. Her legacy is timeless and will never go out of style. She is one of our top requested clients to use in a variety of marketing programs."
These programs include major advertising campaigns for companies like UBS Bank and Leisure Merchandising Company's designer luggage. Brad Meltzer, the founder of Ordinary People Change the World T-shirt line, created an Earhart T-shirt with her inspirational message on the back of the shirt: "I know no bounds." Other licensing deals include working with The Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery on an Amelia Earhart exhibition that runs through May 27, 2013.
