I believe Denise let a bit of sarcasm slip through with her description of the kimono. Visit the link for a more appropriate description of it, and the other items. Quite interesting! But I won't be bidding just yet......

From The Daily Beast article:
"... (a) book by Joe Klaas that claimed Amelia Earhart was alive and living in Monroe, New Jersey, as Mrs. Guy Bolam: Her life had been bartered by Japan so Emperor Hirohito would not be tried as a war criminal. A photo of Amelia in a kimono was included as part of Klaas's evidence, captioned: 'Amelia Earhart being served in a Japanese tearoom.' "

My question is how/why did Elgen Long have Itasca radio dispatches?  I thought those would be at Purdue, or in an archive somewhere?
