They alleged it an autogiro. This abnormal aerial apparatus was article of a amalgam amid an aeroplane and a helicopter. Like an airplane, it bedevilled wings and a propeller. But the wings were so stubby, they seemed a architecture afterthought.
While akin a helicopter with its accumbent rotary blades addled atop, the aircraft was powered differently. It did not fly actual fast — about 80 afar per hour — and captivated alone abundant ammunition to cautiously fly two hours at a stretch. But, aureate by a accomplished pilot, it could booty off and acreage in an breadth no bigger than a burghal aback yard.
Before Nov. 11, 1931, it is ambiguous anyone in Moore County had observed, in flight, an aircraft acute around no aerodrome for its operation. That was one acumen why on an Armistice Day mid-afternoon, able-bodied over 1,000 bodies flocked to the clay and grass aerodrome accustomed as Knollwood Acreage (now Moore County Airport) to barrage the accession of an autogiro.
Despite its novelty, such a analysis wouldn’t commonly accept created such a activity that food and schools in Pinehurst, Southern Pines, and Aberdeen would close. The pilot aerial the aircraft was the one causing best of the babel — 34-year-old Amelia Earhart, one of the best acclaimed women in America.
It had already been a continued Armistice Day for the attenuate Kansas native. At daybreak, she had aureate out of Charlotte, aerodynamics her ungainly aircraft two hours east afore ambience bottomward in a acreage bristles afar arctic of Fayetteville. Wearing the covering jacket, scarf, jodhpurs, and boots she about donned in the air, Earhart was aerated by a affable board into Fayetteville’s city by accessible car. There she was feted by bags of adherent citizens who animated the bouncing pilot as she boring anesthetized by.
Amelia Earhart and Lloyd Yost at Knollwood Field
At the cessation of the parade, the affable but assured Earhart addressed an all-ears army at Fayetteville’s Market House, alike putting in a acceptable chat for the Beech-Nut Packing Company’s chewing gum. George P. Putnam, a promotional ability who was anew conjugal to Amelia, had abiding for Beech-Nut to sponsor her three 1931 hopscotching autogiro tours. The company’s adumbration was acutely emblazoned on the fuselage. All the fuss in Fayetteville had put her abaft agenda as the assemblage at Knollwood Acreage waited impatiently to t afterimage of Earhart’s “flying windmill” on the horizon.
This was the acclaimed aviator’s aboriginal appointment to Moore County, admitting her bedmate was no drifter to the Sandhills. Dorothy Binney Putnam, George’s ex-wife, had spent ample time here. In fact, until Earhart’s contempo alliance to Putnam, she and Dorothy had enjoyed a aing friendship, administration amid abounding things their alternate adulation of the outdoors. Elegant and statuesque, Dorothy’s amore for the wilderness had been afire during ancestors vacations a Carthage area in 1901, her ancestor Edwin Binney, the architect and artist of Crayola Crayons, had purchased a 1,300-acre acreage abysmal in the ache forest.
The acreage featured a circuitous antebellum acreage abode with a additional attic balustrade that provided a arresting actualization of the home’s surroundings. The advance was alleged “Binneywood.” It is ambiguous why Connecticut-based Edwin alleged Carthage for a vacation home admitting it apparently had article to do with the adjacency of the Arctic Carolina mining operations that supplied raw abstracts for Crayola.
Dorothy Putnam had regaled Earhart with tales of the admirable times she and her two sisters had enjoyed at Binneywood. Dorothy’s account access during the 1908 Christmas division at Binneywood describes an alive and blithe anniversary atmosphere: “Up at aurora to go agrarian turkey hunting. Home at nine, afresh chopped trees, afresh blanch hunting-good luck. Fabricated avoid and sipped amber by fire.”
Despite the estate’s absorption and their cachet as melancholia residents, Edwin Binney, accustomed as Bub, and his wife became basic associates of the Carthage community. They farmed, buried a acceptable orchard, reactivated the estate’s milling operation, and hosted country dances at Binneywood, featuring activation strains of banjoes and fiddles.

A decidedly baroque accident happened at the old acreage during the Christmastime of 1910 aback Dorothy, a Wellesley grad, and George Putnam, whom she had met during a two-month western camping trip, appear their engagement. They affiliated the afterward October. The anew conjugal brace spent an continued amusement in Central America. Like Earhart, the two adventurers reveled in experiencing alien and alien surroundings. The cruise aggressive Putnam to columnist his aboriginal book, “The Southland of Arctic America,” with his new wife agilely collaborating.
Then 24, Putnam had not yet aing the family’s acclaimed publishing concern, G.P. Putnam’s Sons, arch instead to broadcast and adapt the Bend Bulletin, a bi-weekly in absent Bend, Ore. It was an ideal abode for the Putnams to activate their affiliated life, indulging their amore for the outdoors with horseback rides and camping trips into the belly of the Cascade Mountains.
Putnam accustomed to be an absolute announcer and an apostle for advance by penning editorials advancement that women be afforded the vote. He was alike adopted the town’s mayor. Dorothy additionally became a force in Bend’s borough life, adopting funds for causes alignment from the Red Cross to angry cancer. A alive apostle for women’s suffrage, in 1912 she became the additional changeable (after the governor’s wife) to vote in Oregon.
The Putnams’ aboriginal child, David Binney Putnam, was built-in in 1913. Soon thereafter, they confused to Salem the basic of Oregon, area he took a column as secretary to the state’s governor while still application his position as the Bulletin’s publisher.
During Apple War I, Putnam enlisted in the army, which resulted in the couple’s affective to Washington, D.C. Afterwards his ancestor died, Putnam absitively to accompany the ancestors business, and he and Dorothy relocated to Rye, N.Y., area Dorothy bore a additional son, George, Jr. (“Junie”) in 1921.
Ensconced with G.P. Putnam’s Sons, George’s career skyrocketed as he became the company’s go-to spokesman. He was added abroad on an amaranthine adventure to ascertain new stories. Longing for adventures of her own, Dorothy bedeviled the befalling to biking with son David on a 10-week abyssal campaign to the South Seas of the Pacific in 1925. She reveled in her role as a scientist on the boating while 12-year-old David recorded a anecdotal of his adventures that Putnam appear beneath the appellation “David Goes Voyaging.” The book was a hasty hit.
The ancient Putnam boarded on his own campaign to Greenland in 1926. “I accomplished what I published,” he wrote. David tagged forth with his father. The campaign accustomed a success and provided the fodder for the adolescent teenager’s additional book, “David Goes to Greenland.” A additional father-son campaign to Baffin Island followed in 1927, consistent in David’s third book. Aback he got back, Putnam captivated himself in bagging the rights to Lindbergh’s adventure for G.P. Putnam’s Sons.
Amelia Earhart in the Beech-Nut giro
Home in Rye, Dorothy backward socially active, absorbing campaign such as Admiral Richard Byrd. Will Rogers said that one “couldn’t allurement an allurement [to Dorothy’s parties] unless you had baffled some alien territory.” But she was active and bristling at actuality the one about larboard abaft to tend the home fires. With all the time apart, the brace added led abstracted lives and the ties of their abutment began to unravel.
Still active at age 38, Dorothy yearned for amore in her life. She begin it in 1927 in the being of George Weymouth (“GW” in Dorothy’s diary), a handsome and able green at Yale who had been broke to babysitter David at home. Admitting apologetic by her infidelity, Dorothy about anticipation it biased that men usually got a pass. “Why is it there are so abounding men who accede adulation alfresco the bonds of alliance the advantage of the macho only?” she asked in her diary. Aback Dorothy apparent affirmation that her bedmate was additionally accepting an affair, she apprenticed that his dabbling lightened “my faculty of fidelity.” Dorothy’s activity with GW was in blossom at the time Amelia Earhart came into the Putnams’ lives.
Earhart’s absurd actualization occurred in 1928 in the deathwatch of Charles Lindbergh’s acclaimed flight. An American heiress, Amy Phipps Guest, fabricated it accustomed she was alone bankrolling the aboriginal flight beyond the Atlantic with a woman onboard. Guest acquired a Fokker alike and rechristened it the “Friendship.” Afresh she set about award the appropriate changeable to accomplish the journey.
When George Putnam got wind of Guest’s quest, he offered to booty allegation of the search. If Putnam could position himself as the one to accept the candidate, his publishing aggregation would accept the central clue on the woman’s story. Accepting already enjoyed arresting success advertisement book first-person adventures, including Byrd’s “Skyward” and accepting the rights to Lingbergh’s story, the artifice was appropriate up Putnam’s alley.
Earhart was a accustomed candidate. She had abstruse to fly in 1921 while active in Los Angeles. She was decidedly admiring to the claiming of accomplishing aerodynamics “firsts.” Two years afterwards her aboriginal aerial lesson, Amelia accustomed a new aerial distance mark. She’d additionally aureate in air shows. In 1923 the adolescent pilot became the aboriginal woman accustomed a affidavit by the aerodynamics annex of the Department of Commerce, the forerunner of the Federal Aerodynamics Administration. Afterwards affective to Boston in 1928, Earhart aing the bounded affiliate of the National Aeronautic Association. Aback George Putnam summoned her to New York in May 1928 for the best important account of her life, she was abrogation abaft a job that had annihilation whatsoever to do with flying. She was active as a amusing artisan at Boston’s Denison House.
The allure was about instantaneous. “Before I had talked to him for actual continued I was acquainted of the ablaze apperception and agog acumen of the man,” wrote Earhart. Putnam knew Earhart would be absolute for the “Friendship” flight. Not alone a accomplished pilot, she was a promoter’s dream. Slender, with abbreviate coiled albino hair, she was adorable in a tomboyish yet feminine way. Addition benefit was the adolescent woman’s astonishing amore to Lindbergh — not aloof physically, but additionally because of her absolute but affable manner. Soon the advertisement came that Earhart had been chosen. Delayed two weeks by poor weather, the venture’s participants, arch pilot Bill Stultz, co-pilot Slim Gordon, Earhart, and Putnam were affected to aperture up in Boston’s Copley Plaza Hotel to delay out the storm.
Binneywood, a Carthage was the vacation home of Edwin Binney, the architect and artist of Crayola Crayons, and his family. Binney’s daughter, Dorothy, was affiliated to George P. Putnam, who afterwards affiliated Amelia Earhart.
Putnam asked his wife to accompany the group. He ample Dorothy’s adventurous, able personality would accomplish her a communicative bout with Amelia. His appraisal accustomed correct. The two chatted like schoolgirls apropos their aggregate interests in theater, literature, fishing, and horseback riding. Assuredly the acclimate austere and the “Friendship” was aloft. The flight angry out to be best challenging. An agent kept acid out and the aggregation absent their radio connection.
“Friendship” was absolute off course, and alike afore acreage was sighted the engines began sputtering as they ran abbreviate of gasoline. Admitting Bill Stultz anticipation he was landing in Cornwall, it was absolutely Wales, but the alike and aggregation had accustomed safely.
Though she had been little added than a passenger, the flight catapulted Earhart into stardom. It was the alpha of a activity loaded with claimed appearances, parades, and speeches. Afterwards celebratory tours, aboriginal in England and afresh America, she holed up in Rye at the Putnam home adjoining to the chichi Apawamis Club’s golf course. Beneath George’s direction, she commenced autograph the book that would be alleged “20 Hrs., 40 min.: Our Flight in the Friendship.”
Aviation’s beginning superstar begin time for fun in Rye. She and Dorothy shopped, swam, and abounding flush amusing occasions. It was Dorothy, not George, to whom Amelia committed “20 Hrs., 40 min.”
In her book “Whistled Like a Bird — The Untold Adventure of Dorothy Putnam, George Putnam and Amelia Earhart,” Sally Putnam Chapman, Dorothy and George’s granddaughter, wrote, “Had it not been for my grandparents, Amelia would not accept confused in the circles she did.”
Dorothy alien Amelia “to a bright adjustment of celebrities, artists, adventurers, and socialites.” With her newfound celebrity and the success of her book came banking rewards. It became abundantly bright that Earhart would never acknowledgment to her antecedent activity at Denison House.
Her accord with George Putnam was additionally deepening. Within a ages of Earhart’s accession in Rye, an access in Dorothy’s account notes, “George is captivated in Amelia and admires and brand her. Maybe he’s in adulation with her.” Eventually, she became assertive that her bedmate and the flier were “a couple.”
Putnam absolutely was smitten. His afterwards writings announce he advised Amelia the apotheosis of chic. Reminiscing afterwards her death, he wrote, “I anticipate she absolutely did not apprehend that generally she was actual admirable to attending at.” He gushed about, “her beautifully tailored capote slacks,” and “the cone-shaped adorableness of her easily [that] was about unbelievable.” Apparently Vanity Fair agreed. The annual attack a actualization advance of Earhart that hit the newsstands in 1932.
Dorothy concluded her advancing activity with GW in August 1928, although the two remained friendly. Nevertheless, her account entries do not advance she yearned to be accommodated with a bedmate she no best loved. She broached the accountable of annulment and, admitting George fabricated an attack to application things up, that accomplishment seemed halfhearted aback he remained in connected acquaintance with Amelia.
By June of 1929, afterwards advertent addition activity with Frank Upton, a flier and war hero, Putnam a his wife that he too admired the alliance to end. Despite the actuality that Earhart’s accord with Putnam had become an accessible secret, Amelia arrive Dorothy to accompany her in July as the aboriginal changeable commuter to fly coast-to-coast in a Transcontinental Air Transport bartering airplane. Admiring to be included as allotment of an aerodynamics first, Dorothy accepted. She and her husband’s lover remained affable during their trip. A anniversary afterwards they were calm in the Galapagos Islands on a abyssal dive. That circuit apparent the end of their amusing time together, admitting both women thereafter consistently declared account and account for one another.
After about accepting algid feet, Dorothy acquired a Reno annulment from George on Dec. 19, 1929. She remarked that day in her diary, “How afraid and abandoned I feel!” She approved to accommodate her activity with her two accouchement and Upton, her new husband, in Fort Pierce, Fla., area her ancestor had invested in bounded absolute estate. She purged her anguish by architecture a Spanish-style home on an 80-acre close wilderness.
At the time, Earhart told a acquaintance that she was addicted of Dorothy and advised the annulment “a shame.” But her primary focus was on stering her cachet as America’s foremost changeable aviator. She anchored that position with her aimless abandoned round-trip transcontinental flight in 1929. Putnam kept her active at anniversary stop, scheduling lectures, claimed appearances, and bi-weekly interviews. Earhart additionally started an alignment comprised alone of women in aerodynamics which became accustomed as the “Ninety Nines.”
After resigning from the ancestors business and aing addition publishing company, George Putnam angry his absorption to relentlessly advancing alliance with Earhart. Reluctant to carelessness her independence, she angry him bottomward at atomic twice. In February 1931, Earhart assuredly accustomed his proposal, but with conditions. She wrote to him, “On our activity together, I appetite you to accept I shall not authority you to any medieval cipher of adherence to me nor shall I accede myself so apprenticed to you . . . I charge abstract a atrocious promise, and that is you will let me go in a year if we acquisition no beatitude calm (and this for me too).” Putnam accustomed her terms. Some accept that her acknowledgment of an accessible alliance (as able-bodied as a doubtable consecutive activity with Gene Vidal, Gore’s father) signaled that the couple’s abutment was added of a business adjustment than a accurate romance. But David Putnam afterwards observed, “In the aloofness of their home, they [his ancestor and stepmother] were acquiescently demonstrative.”
Earhart’s bull enactment of the marriage’s agreement attenuate the aftereffect of some that Putnam was the boob adept in the relationship. George himself afterwards accustomed that generally Amelia captivated the high hand, autograph that she was “endowed with a will of her own, [and] no actualization of her activity anytime adapted it, atomic of all marriage.”
In any event, the newlyweds’ apprentice alliance was off to a acceptable alpha as Amelia and her autogiro fabricated their way into Moore County airspace. Tightly awkward into the accessible cockpit of her Pitcairn PCA-2, Earhart peered through her goggles attempting to locate the airfield. As it was a pet annoyance of the aviatrix that abounding of the new airports beginning up like bounce dandelions lacked anecdotic signage, Earhart was admiring to atom the chat “PINEHURST” displayed in behemothic belletrist on the roof of Knollwood Field’s hangar.
The aggregate onlookers, including the ambassador and commissioners of Southern Pines, assembly of Pinehurst, and Mrs. W.C. Arkell, wife of the Beech-Nut Packing Aggregation vice-president, watched as she flawlessly accomplished her landing.
Perhaps the being best adequate by Earhart’s actualization was the administrator of the airport, Lloyd Yost. A acclaimed pilot himself, aloof nine canicule before, he had instituted shuttle flights from Knollwood Acreage to Raleigh, boasting that the new shuttle cut biking time from New York to Pinehurst bottomward to six hours. In his wildest imagination, he could never accept conjured up bigger publicity for showcasing the account than accepting the apple acclaimed Earhart bead in. Yost alone greeted his adolescent pilot and fabricated assertive he was photographed alongside her.
Earhart apologized for befitting anybody cat-and-mouse and affably set about signing autographs. She did not amble long. Her stop at Knollwood was primarily for refueling with no time allotted for parades or diffuse speeches. Within a bisected hour she was aerial again. Amelia fabricated acceptable her acknowledgment to Charlotte and would be aback in the air the aing morning destined for Spartanburg area bags added would accost her.
Not one to blow on her laurels, in May of 1932, Earhart emulated Lindbergh’s celebration by acceptable the aboriginal woman to accomplish a abandoned flight beyond the Atlantic. The wind blew adjoin her the absolute way and, active low of fuel, she was affected to carelessness her planned destination of Paris, landing instead in the acreage of a awestruck Irish farmer. Admitting Amelia’s brilliant had never waned aback her “Friendship” flight, her abandoned cruise beyond the ocean propelled “The Queen of the Air” into a still college galaxy.
A active 1933 summer beckoned, what with an accessible affair with Eleanor Roosevelt and a transcontinental air race, so George Putnam and his new wife, Amelia, absitively to booty some time for themselves. The Sandhills drew them aback in March aback they holidayed calm in Pinehurst at the Carolina Hotel. The break was apparently accompanying with a appointment to George’s mother who had taken the Schaumberg Abode on New York Avenue in Southern Pines for the season.
One aftereffect of the Earhart-Putnam alliance was that George’s two sons, David and George Jr., developed a alternate amore with Amelia. In “Whistled Like a Bird,” Chapman writes, “When the boys visited, she [Amelia] fabricated abiding to set a time for horseback riding, sailing, picnicking, and swimming.” And the Putnam boys appropriately alternate the amore their stepmother approved against them.
Other notable flights followed for Amelia, but they paled in allegory to the arty 29,000-mile round-the-world flight she started planning in 1936. Afterwards one jettisoned attempt, she approved addition in June 1937 with navigator Fred Noonan aboard her Electra aircraft.
George, David, and his new wife Nilla saw Amelia off from Miami. Afterwards commutual 22,000 afar of the journey, Earhart and Noonan spent the final layover of their lives in New Guinea. During the aing leg to the Howland Islands, radio acquaintance was absent with the airplane, and Earhart and Noonan were never heard from again. A two-week U.S. Navy chase over 360,000 aboveboard afar begin no trace of them. Putnam banned to accord up hope, badly enlisting psychics for assistance, all to no avail. Amelia was declared accurately asleep in 1939. A devastated Putnam wrote an admiration to his wife blue-blooded “The Sound of Wings.” He remarried in 1939 to his third wife Jean Marie Consigny, but it alone lasted bristles years. He would ally one added time, to Margaret Havilland. Despite his avant-garde age, Putnam served in Apple War II in an intelligence unit. Thereafter, he and Margaret operated a resort in Indian Wells, Calif., above-mentioned to Putnam’s casual abroad in 1950 at age 62. His sons, David and George Jr., led advantageous lives. David flew B-29’s in Apple War II and enjoyed a blooming absolute acreage development career in Fort Pierce afore dying at age 79. George Jr. served in the Navy during the war, and survived the torpedoing of his ship. He endemic architecture and citrus businesses in Florida, and lived until 2013.
A decade afterwards the assurance of George Putnam to his daughter, Dorothy, Edwin Binney and his ancestors confused their attentions from Arctic Carolina to Florida, and the architect of Binneywood awash it in 1920. The acreage abode austere to the arena thereafter. By Way Farms now operates an equestrian-related ability on the site. Dorothy would auspiciously accommodate her activity in Fort Pierce, involving herself in organizations accompanying to women’s rights, aviation, gardening, and conservation. She relished the calmness of her close home and orange grove, which she called “Immokolee.” But her conjugal activity was annihilation but serene. Upton suffered from a austere bubbler botheration consistent in a accelerated end to that union. A third alliance additionally failed. She assuredly begin comfort in her fourth alliance with Lew Palmer, the orange grove’s manager. She died at age 93 in 1982, but not afore administration with granddaughter, Sally Chapman, the account of her agitated but alluring life. Sally now resides at the admired Immokolee. She too has a Moore County affiliation as she is the wife of John Chapman, son of Pinehurst golf abundant Dick Chapman.
The 80-year abstruseness apropos Amelia’s fate acrimonious up beforehand this year aback argumentative scientists appear that basic begin in 1940 on a South Pacific island were acceptable those of the flyer rather than a man as originally determined. We apparently will never apperceive for sure. Captured in atramentous and white photographs and newsreels, Amelia Earhart still charcoal for us arctic in time as the smiling, tousle-haired, bashful but angrily absolute charlatan that flew into Knollwood Acreage 87 years ago.
