About 11 weeks ago This Day in History: on this day in 1940, John Steinbeck was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for his novel The Grapes of Wrath. The novel tells the story of the Joads, a poor Oklahoma farming family, who migrate to California in search of a better life during the Great Depression of the 1930s. Steinbeck effectively demonstrated how the struggles of one family mirrored the hardship of the entire nation.

About 9 weeks ago This Day in History: on this day in 1932, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She departed from Newfoundland and landed in a pasture in Northern Ireland.

Amelia Earhart may have been the most well-known woman pilot of her time, but she was neither the first nor the last to achieve great heights in the world of American Aviation. Check out American Experience's “Women in Flight” photo gallery for more. http://to.pbs.org/1jsMIqm
