Comments and Notes
NAME: Mrs. Amelia Earhart Putnam
SITE DEVELOPMENT: On the day of the monument’s dedication in Harrison, there was also a ceremony in neighboring Rye, New York, as the Earhart/Putnam home straddled both communities. It was during this ceremony, according to the New York Times, that Ms. Earhart commented, “I grow my vegetables in Rye and eat them in Harrison.” (June 28, 1932)
