People Who Studied Abroad #355:
Amelia Earhart, aviation pioneer
In 1917, she visited her sister in Toronto, where Muriel was attending a college preparatory school. Amelia was inspired by the sight of wounded soldiers returning from WWI to study through the Canadian Red Cross to become a nurse’s aide. She worked at Spadina Military Hospital in Toronto until she contracted the Spanish flu in the 1918 epidemic.
