The History of Protecting Earhart's, and More...
2018 marks eleven years of presenting Amelia Earhart truths over the internet
This website features a broad-based preview of Protecting Earhart's landmark discoveries on the obfuscated fate of Amelia Earhart. Launched in 2007 to better enlighten the curious, it exists today as the most truthful, historically revealing, and overall important Amelia Earhart website on the internet.

About Truth...
"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self evident." 
Arthur Schopenhauer

Eight decades ago, Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan were said to have 'disappeared' while flying around the world. Protecting Earhart details the most controversial information about their last flight, including the results of a long-term forensic analysis of its unplanned outcome.
On any official level, the subject of the post-loss reality of Amelia's world flight ending has always been greeted by deflections from sanctioned U.S. historians, or outright avoided entirely. This left the door open for all kinds of ideas presented over the years, some of them outlandish, that attempted to explain what happened to the two fliers. In the mid-1990s, Protecting Earhart's Tod Swindell embarked on what would end up being a twenty-year journey to return a serious historical perspective to age-old missing person case of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan. His efforts led to some additional realizations about Amelia's loss, that included the viewpoint President Franklin Roosevelt's White House administration maintained about it.

Henry P. Morgenthau Jr. & FDR

From the time the event of Amelia's loss took place in July of 1937, there was never a detailed official explanation offered on what happened to her. Perhaps the closest thing to it surfaced in a May 13, 1938 White House Dictaphone transcript discovered decades later, where one of President Franklin Roosevelt's most trusted cabinet members, Henry P. Morgenthau Jr., responded to a query made by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, by obliquely referencing a difficult situation Amelia endured toward the end of her flight in the following manner: "What that woman, ...happened to her the last few minutes, I hope I've just got to never make it public."

What did Henry P. Morgenthau Jr. mean by that?
On the morning of July 2, 1937, Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan had missed their intended destination of Howland Island and were in the process of exercising their 'Plan B' option of heading back to the civilized British Gilbert Islands that they had flown over during the night. Heavy storm squalls had been reported to the east of the Gilberts chain, causing them to steer around them to the north, leaving them dangerously close to Japan's guarded Marshall Islands while doing so. Later, rumors emanated that Japan had engaged and fired on the duo, and it appears Henry Morgenthau's 1938 comment of 'what happened to that woman (Earhart) her last few minutes' that he 'hoped he just would never have to make public' was relative to it. It looked to be the case, that the White House had privately ascertained that Amelia and Fred had been shot-down for their encroachment on Japan's Marshall Islands, and they had met their demise that way.
Later, probably by the time Germany invaded Poland in 1939 or maybe even before, U.S. intelligence either suspected or outright knew that Japan had managed to rescue Earhart and Noonan after the duo ditched in the lower Marshall Islands, and it optioned to detain them approximate to the same time the Sino-Japanese War began. Joseph Gervais postulated how Japan may have surreptitiously liberated Fred Noonan, but chose to continue holding on to Amelia.

About a former title of this website:
"The Obfuscated Reality Of Amelia Earhart's 1937 World Flight Outcome"

'obfuscate' verb, past tense; obfuscated 

1. Obscuring the meaning of something to make it more difficult to grasp. 2. An equation, event, or happening made obscure, unclear, or unintelligible, at times by intention.


"With the 1937 missing person case of Amelia Earhart and the wide variety of Twentieth Century attempts made to explain what happened to her, instead of providing clarity to it all, the result was inadvertent media obfuscation."
Protecting Earhart's Tod Swindell

Some Recent 'Repeat' Obfuscations...
On the 'tabloid-like' November 2017 "Amelia Earhart was eaten by giant crabs" Fox News story: Amelia Earhart's body wasn't devoured by giant crabs on Nikumaroro Island. This suggestion was discredited years ago, when the overall 'Nikumaroro' theory was relied on to amass financial support to pay for misguided expeditions to the place. People fell for it then, and began donating to the group that promoted the false claim. To be sure, it is inadvisable to offer funding to the myopic purporters of this highly contrived, historical charade.
On the recent November 2017 "Amelia Earhart was executed by Japan's military on Saipan" Newsweek story: Forensics proved this as well to have been a falsely purported conveyance. Not to leave out, Japan disavowed ever harming Amelia Earhart and the United States never accused it of such a thing.

On the Findings of Protecting Earhart
"One newly developed phenomenon, is how in recent years some Amelia Earhart cottage industries, past Earhart authors and a few misguided enthusiasts out there have been coercing the public into viewing Protecting Earhart's forensic analysis results as 'insignificant.' It's findings cannot be over-challenged, however, regarding previously unknown aspects of Amelia Earhart's full-life story the analysis discovered, and then so plainly revealed." Protcting Earhart's Tod Swindell, 2018

Protecting Earhart's 1997 to 2017 forensic analysis solidly discovered and proved: There were three people attributed to the same 'Irene Bolam' identity in the Twentieth Century, and one of them, who appeared nowhere as 'Irene' prior to the mid-1940s, used to be known as 'Amelia Earhart.' She died in 1982.

Click here to e-mail Protecting Earhart/ E-mail address: advertises nothing but the truth about Amellia Earhart. It has existed as a World Wide Web internet website since 2007. Although periodically shouted down by naysayers, it has never been overchallenged. It features researcher, Tod Swindell's first ever embarked on, "Comprehensive Forensic Analysis and Forensic Comparison Study" that, 1.) Proved more than one person used the same 'Irene' identity. 2.) Displayed the head-to-toe and character-traits congruence the Joseph A. Gervais 1965 recognized "Irene Bolam" shared with Amelia Earhart. 3.) Proved the Joseph A. Gervais 1965 recognized "Irene Bolam" appeared nowhere identified as 'Irene' prior to the mid-1940s, ultimately concluding against the grain fo conventional knowledge, that she and Amelia Earhart marked the same physical human being in younger and older forms going by different names.
Tod Swindell's forensic analysis endeavor was initiated in 1997, and first received national notice in 2002. His original titled manuscript, Protecting Earhart: The Beautiful Alter Ego and Silent Legacy of History's Most Famous Flying Heroine has been housed and registered at the Writers Guild of America West since 2004, #1033972, and was ultimately copyrighted after several revisions and updates in 2014, # TXu 1-915-926. It was again copyrighted in 2017 with additional combined elements from the forensic study newly inserted, # TXu 2-061-539. For subsidiary-rights inquiries e-mail George Brunt Esq. at is dedicated to the past tireless efforts of the late USAF Major Joseph A. Gervais [1924-2005] and the late USAF Col. Rollin C. Reineck [1920-2007], two World War Two heroes who began expounding on the 'Amelia became Irene' truth decades ago. A major thank you goes to Tod Swindell's chief collaborative partner, Lost Star author, Randall Brink, who worked directly with Joseph Gervais for well over a decade before intorducing Tod Swindell to him in 1996. A thanks also goes out to pilot-author, Ann Holtgren Pellegreno, who supplied additional 'Irene' photo data and handwritten letters for the study, that along with much similar data Joseph Gervais and Rollin Reineck forwarded Tod's way as transferred from a 1970s good friend of Mrs. Bolam's, the late Diana Dawes. All of these elements combined enabled the study to reach its reality based conclusion. Thanks as well to former CIA operative, Bazzell Baz, who provided much insight to this Earhart truth seeking endeavor when it was first getting underway in Santa Monica, CA in the mid-1990s.
Joseph A. Gervais, who is still considered by many to have been the most knowledgeable Amelia Earhart investigative researcher ever to pursue the truth, first asserted the Irene-Amelia reality in 1965. The controversial 1970 McGraw-Hill book by Joe Klaas, Amelia Earhart Lives delved into the enormous amount of Joe Gervais' investigative research and displayed the first nationally published photo of Mrs. Irene Bolam, AKA the Gervais-Irene, FKA 'Amelia Earhart.'
From Tod Swindell: "Regardless of the fallout caused by Amelia Earhart Lives after 1970, my good friends, Major Gervais and Colonel Reineck spent the remaining decades of their lives working to better advance the reality of Amelia Earhart's name-changed survival to authenticity, after enduring their own long term evaluations of the existing evidence that supported it. Their efforts, but especially the decades old, never wavering claim of Joseph A. Gervais, inspired me to orhestrate the forensic analysis that ultimately proved their long hel beliefs correct. Colonel Reineck's book, Amelia Earhart Survived that was published in late 2003, and was driven by my 'newly embarked on' forensic comparison study. Portions of my study appeared in his book, although a more extensively display of my material is seen here in Colonel Reineck's book was also the first to credit my study for "proving" how one of the Twentieth Century women who used the same 'Irene' identity had been previously known as Amelia Earhart."
