Woman finds Amelia Earhart Pictures while cleaning out storage unit

August 22, 2011

Dian Brown says she found the photos in a box of belongings she inherited from her mother.

A woman found 18 original, never-published photos of aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart while cleaning out a storage unit.

Dian Brown says she found them in a box of belongings she inherited when her mom died in 1972.

The photos appear to be publicity photos for Earhart’s final flight, during which she disappeared.

Brown believes the photos were a gift to her mother from Earhart, but she does not know how they might have met. An auction house examined them and is auctioning them for Brown.

The photos could bring in up to $1,000 each.
