Amelia Earhart and Amy Earhart are Welcomed in Boston, July 9, 1928

Summary

Amy Earhart generally supported her daughter's aviation pursuits, and she put up much of the money for Amelia to buy her first airplane in 1922. Amelia didn't tell her mother about her planned flight across the Atlantic in 1928 -- to spare Amy the worry. Amy was relieved and pleased to see her daughter at the Boston ceremony celebrating the successful flight.
