Archived Research Bulletins

A Note To Readers:

These Research Bulletins serve two purposes. On a primary level they show the progress of the Earhart Project and keep our members abreast of the current research. The most recent Bulletin will always be the latest we know or think we know about the subject.

But the Bulletins also are a history of the Earhart Project. If you begin reading at Project Bulletin #1, “The Castaway of Gardner Island,” and continue up this page in sequence, you will find that many things we thought we knew turned out to be untrue, and things we thought were of no importance are essential to the solution of the Earhart mystery. Rather than attempting to update each Bulletin, or taking down outdated materials, we have chosen to “show our work” in the tradition of academic scientific research. We hope you enjoy the journey.
