~~~ exists as the most truthful and revealing Amelia Earhart website on the internet. It was launced in 2007 by Tod Swindell. It has never been overchallenged because it displays the forensic truth about what became of Amelia Earhart after she went missing in 1937.



Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam


If you are interested in knowing what became of Amelia Earhart after the summer of 1937, the answer is seen in the above mid-1970s photo-portrait. To understand how this is now known to be true, take your time going through the material this website presents. There is much to digest.


Forensic: Relating to or denoting applications of scientific methodology during the course of an investigation in an effort to determine the true origin of what is being investigated. Example: "They got him on ballistics; a forensic analysis determined the bullet came from his gun."
Forensic Evidence: That suitable for argumentation in a court of law.

The forensic research and forensic comparison results you are about to review are part of a long-term study that thoroughly analyzed each of the above topics pertaining to the historically recognized, 'intertwined lives' of Amelia Earhart and Irene Craigmile Bolam.
The 'new millennium' study was conceived and arranged in order to get to the bottom of a never disavowed assertion publicly maintained for thirty-five years [1970-2005] by former USAF Captain, Joseph A. Gervais (1924-2005).
After deeply looking into it, Joseph A. Gervais, who retired from the Air Force as a Major in 1963, ascertained that Amelia Earhart and Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam had existed as the same life-long individual human being known by different names in different eras without public awareness.
Major Gervais served as a fighter pilot in World War Two and he flew missions in the Korean War and Vietnam as well before retiring from his military career. He was also a family man noted for his good character.
Generally unrealized into the new millennium, Joseph A. Gervais' assertion about Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam was never forensically over-challenged. This is because, as you will soon identify for yourself, it was true.
After meeting and getting to know Joseph A. Gervais in the late 1990s, and finding out that his assertion about Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam had never been forensically evaluated on a serious level, research and development specialist, Tod Swindell took it to task. After consulting with a variety of forensic experts his long-term study commenced, and the end result marked the first comprehensive forensic analysis to ever compare Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam to Amelia Earhart.
Prior to his passing in 2005, upon being shown the initial results of the analysis with his wife, Thelma, Joseph A. Gervais plainly commented, "It just shows what we've known all along."
Over the years people have countered time and again, "what about DNA?" This proved unavailable. When she died in 1982, Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam donated her body to Rutger's Medical College in New Jersey with a pre-written stipulation it was only to be accessed by its attending medical technicians. In response to what became of her remains, the school replied her body was cremated and interned in a common grave. Hence, just as Amelia Earhart's body was purported to have 'never been seen again' after July 2, 1937; after Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam died on July 7, 1982, her body was never seen again either, at least, not outside the walls of Rutger's Medical College. 
The catch was, as the analysis realized, there was an original Irene Craigmile who Amelia Earhart knew in the 1930s, and whose identity she ended up assuming for herself to use in the United States after the World War Two years. Learn more about the original Irene Craigmile throughout this website, and how Amelia Earhart ended up acquiescing her identity for her own post-fame years use.

About "Truth"

"Truth is not a mystery -- its greatest secrets are yours to know through simple honesty and surrender to what that honesty reveals." John de Ruiter



This 35MM photograph taken in 1965 by Joseph A. Gervais displays the same "Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam" shown in the black and white photo portrait at the top of the page. Mrs. Bolam openly described herself to have been a 'past good friend' of Amelia Earhart to Joseph A. Gervais when the two met each other. She also commanded a recognized air of importance among the people she was acquainted with, to include high-ranking military figures and well-known pilots from the 1930s, 'Golden Age of Aviation.' A comprehensive forensic analysis concluded with absolute certainty that this particular Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam was identified nowhere as 'Irene' or 'Craigmile' or 'Bolam' prior to the mid-1940s. The analysis also conveys the true origin of these names. To learn about the other forensically determined realities of this Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam, who from 1928 to 1937 had been famously known as 'Amelia Earhart,' read the additional results here featuring the first credible in-depth evaluation of her Twentieth Century existence.  

"The forensic studies are very convincing. She was not an ordinary housewife. She was influential, knew many well placed people and was well traveled." John Bolam, Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam's survived brother-in-law comments on the initial results of the Irene-Amelia forensic analysis in an Associated Press article by Ron Staton. The 2002 article marked the first national news item to announce the advent of Tod Swindell's forensic research and human comparison analysis in the new millennium. [The full Associated Press article appears further down.]


A 2018 note from the orchestrator of the forensic analysis and creator of this website, Tod Swindell.

I first launched in late 2007. It was initially meant to serve as a rebuttal to a recently expressed viewpoint of the National Geographic Channel that had asked me to appear on an Amelia Earhart special it aired the year before. The producers of the special tracked me down after learning from different Amelia Earhart aficionados of a 'forensic comparison analysis' I controlled that shed a new light on Amelia's never resolved "missing person" case. Upon locating me, they asked if I would allow them to include the analysis in its program, having additionally learned that its preliminary results drew attention from the Associated Press a few years earlier. (See the 2002 AP article further down.)
To Hawaii, where much of its Amelia Earhart special was filmed, Nat Geo flew myself and covered the cost to ship a dozen of the large panels that displayed the key results of the Irene-Amelia forensic analysis I had sponsored and initiated in the mid-1990s, (after consulting with forensic experts who explained how to go about it) and then dedicated much investigative research to the next ten years to enhance it. Disappointingly, though, Nat Geo elected not to address or feature the panels after its producers reviewed the controversial information they displayed. So here, what offers is what Nat Geo decided not to share with the public. Its final program did show a trifle of some forensic overlay samples I had carried with me, but it was barely enough to whet the appetite of a true skeptic. I was also grilled on camera for two hours, only to see my contribution trimmed down to a few minutes of air time.
Nat Geo's inability to recognize or believe what the forensic analysis accomplished is what inspired me to display it on the World Wide Web. So was launched in 2007, and it has remained on-line ever since while being further added to as time passed. To date hundreds of pages worth of pertinent data have been presented on that additionally fortified the realities it conveys, to especially include the main forensic truth of a renamed Amelia Earhart continuing to live-on after World War Two in the United States until her passing took place in 1982, with the general public remaining unaware of it. (Thanks to the comparison analysis there is no doubt anymore such a thing did happen. That's not to say this was not already known. Former USAF Captain, Joseph A. Gervais figured it out in the 1960s and never stopped averring it to his dying day in 2005, causing endless consternation along the way.)
At this point, I need to make it clear that I am not and never have been a 'conspiracy theorist.' "Conspiracy" is a dark word used to describe an immoral group of unnamed individuals who work in concert to keep their nefarious activities and the orchestrated result(s) they cause from becoming known beyond their inner circle. I do not believe there ever was an active conspiracy embarked on to keep the true outcome of Amelia Earhart's so-called, "disappearance" from being recognized by the public. Rather, I view it as something that became deeply buried during the conflagration of World War Two, akin to so many other non mend-able actions, stratagems, hostilities and atrocities the war left behind. It is my belief that it was commonly determined how the best attitude to adopt after World War Two ended was to move-on with as little looking back at such war-time happenings as possible---with the obvious exception of the 'never again to occur' holocaust remaining queued in the forefront of the world's memory banks.
In essence, while countries that had been war-time enemies worked to mend their own fences and to help mend each other's, they did their best to look beyond negative war occurrences not only in the spirit of atonement, but for the imperative need of a better geopolitical future.
This included the U.S. and Japan conjointly agreeing to always view the unnoticed by the world public, anonymous post-war reemergence of the then still existing, all-be-her war-time obscured Amelia Earhart with, "official silence." (Note the 1982 Bender & Altschul quote below this writ.)
Highlighting this post-war credo, in the fall of 1945, in response to a reporter's question on how he believed the world was different after the war, President Harry S. Truman replied, "The only thing different is the history you don't know."
Think about that.   
In the meantime, though a handful of important sounding individuals continue to decry the obvious forensic analysis results, the forensic analysis itself has never been over-challenged and it never will be, because it merely displays the truth about what became of Amelia Earhart after July 2, 1937. Only unanswered questions remain, and they pertain to 'how' and 'why' Amelia Earhart ended up as she did after she went 'missing' all those years ago--and then was prematurely declared, "dead in absentia" in January of 1939.
To reiterate, I would like to emphasize that the analysis only ascertained what became of Amelia Earhart after she went missing. It does not offer a certain conclusion about what actually happened to her (and Fred Noonan) on July 2, 1937, nor does it offer a certain conclusion pertaining to where Amelia was and what she was doing during the World War Two years.
My gut feeling is those questions are now destined to be answered by concerned official U.S. historians in order to account for the truthful information the overall analysis displays, plenty of which is observable on In the meantime, somewhat myopic individuals, or those not willing to take the time to review, understand, and accept this carefully researched and forensically developed information, will more than likely remain in denial when it comes to what became of Amelia Earhart after she went missing in 1937, until said 'how' and 'why' questions are authoritatively answered by high-level U.S. and Nippon offices.
The analysis results begin after the following quote--and the two images with their accompanying description.
Thank you,
Tod Swindell

The Bender & Altschul Quote:

"Numerous investigations foundered on official silence in Tokyo and Washington, leaving the true fate of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan an everlasting mystery." 1982 quote from the voluminous Marylin Bender, Selig Altschul 'Pan Am Airways anthology,' The Chosen Instrument




Above: The Kailua, Hawaii set of the National Geographic Channel's Amelia Earhart 'mystery update' special. The photos here display six of the twelve 'comprehensive forensic analysis' panels that drew a certain conclusion on Amelia's never officially resolved 'missing person' case. This particular location was at the home of retired USAF Colonel Rollin C. Reineck, whose then recent book, Amelia Earhart Survived featured portions of the analysis with permission granted by Tod Swindell and 1967 Earhart flight duplicator, Ann Holtgren Pellegreno, who supplied some of the photo-data used in the analyisis. Within the panels, the multiple individuals attributed to the same "Irene Craigmile Bolam" identity were clearly displayed, (shown further down) as was the head-to-toe physical congruence and character traits congruence of the post-World War Two 'Irene Craigmile Bolam' and her former-self, Amelia Earhart. Needless to say, after observing the controversial realities presented in the panels, the show's producers were clearly ill-prepared to contend with them. Even though they had asked to feature them and paid for their shipping cost, after some deliberating they requested the panels be removed before filming commenced. Hence, this website provides a thorough overview of the analysis results the panels displayed that Nat Geo elected not to share with the public.
Below: Nat Geo's 2006 produced, "Where's Amelia Earhart?" special that featured researchers, Tod Swindell and Colonel Rollin Reineck in support of the long-maintained Joseph A. Gervais assertion (Joseph A. Gervais' passing occurred the previous year) was eventually released on DVD. Beyond Nat Geo downplaying the forensic analysis results as well as choosing not to display the most important elements of what it achieved (that shored-up Joseph A. Gervais' long maintained Amelia became Irene assertion) its program merely rehashed the same old stories about Amelia's disappearance without offering anything new or enlightening to its viewing audience. 



Alethephobia: "Fear of Truth"

When it comes to the Irene-Amelia truth, ever since the controversy over Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam surfaced in the 1970s, historical dictum influences have deftly avoided it. Senators, Congressmen, government supported institutions, news media moguls, even Amelia's extended family members have always optioned to quickly dismiss it out of hand over seriously addressing it. This is mainly due to the 'official silence' devoted to the topic of Amelia's disappearance from the governments' of the United States and Japan dating back to the World War Two era. In the new millennium, however, thanks to the undeniable results of a comprehensive forensic research and comparison analysis, the truth grew to be recognizable to what is now an obvious state, and understanding, accepting, and embracing any truth once it becomes identifiable, especially if it's an important historical truth, is always best in the long run.

Keeping relative discoveries from the past in perspective, in the case of Charles Lindbergh's "Careu Kent" alias, he used that name for decades while leading a separate life without the public knowing until it was verified in 2004, thirty-years after he died.


Below: As displayed in the analysis results, it turned out there were three different Twentieth Century women who were historically attributed to the same "Irene Craigmile Bolam" identity.

This Irene Craigmile gave birth to a son in 1934. She and Amelia Earhart had known each other.

Above on the left is the original Irene Craigmile's husband, Charles James Craigmile, and on the right is the original Irene Craigmile's father, Richard Joseph O'Crowley.

The original Irene Craigmile, 1932

Irene Craigmile's son identified this woman to have been his "mother" the way she looked "around 1940" and in "the 1970s," although the forensic analysis made it clear she was not his biological mother. To date, no one in the public realm knows who she really was, where she came from, or where she ended up. There is only one known-of postulation offered by Tod Swindell that suggests how her life may have also been intertwined with Amelia Earhart's in a family protected way. In 1984, a long ago friend of the original Irene Craigmile's family estimated this particular 'Irene' who she referred to as "Irene Jr." was "born in 1924" and was 'raised' by the original Irene's extended family in Newark, New Jersey. Amelia had been a good Zonta club friend of the original Irene Craigmile's aunt dating back to 1928, when she first became famous.

The Irene Craigmile and Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam images in this column were identified nowhere as "Irene" prior to the mid-1940s. In 1958 this Irene Craigmile wed Englishman, Guy Bolam, the head of Radio Luxembourg. She became known as Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam from then on, or just, 'Irene Bolam.'

Tear-duct to tear-duct the eyes above aligned perfectly with those of her former Amelia self; all facial lines and creases as well, and as you will continue to see, necks, shoulders, heights, arm-lengths, hands, foot sizes, handwriting, etc., everything aligned perfectly. As Monsignor Kelley described it about his late friend, Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam in 1987, who was identified nowehere as 'Irene' prior to the mid-1940s, "After all she'd been through she didn't want to be Amelia Earhart anymore." Who are we to judge or blame her for eventually feeling that way, not knowing a thing about what she ended up having to endure as World War Two raged on? Looking at the above images, we also recall the title of Shirley Dobson Gilroy's 1985 book, Amelia: Pilot In Pearls.

Anymore, The 'Known' Truth

There were three different Twentieth Century women attributed to the same "Irene Craigmile Bolam" identity, and one of them, who was not identified that way prior to the mid-1940s, most definitely was previously known as Amelia Earhart.

This is the truth about what became of Amelia Earhart after July 2, 1937. There is no other truth beyond invented ones individuals chose or still choose to embrace, and in some cases promote to the public sans proof-worthy logic to support their differing ideas.

No matter what continues to be offered to the contrary, Amelia's ongoing existence as "Irene" after the World War Two era is now known to be what became of her after she was reported missing during the dawn of the World War Two era--in an area that soon after became a hornets' nest region in the Pacific war theater.

It is time to stop fearing this reality; to stop automatically rejecting it. Doing so will enable it to rise to the surface so it can be acknowledged and accepted by the public, and further dealt with in a responsible manner out of concern for, and in the interest of truthful historical posterity.

It is time to get real about what became of Amelia Earhart after she was reported missing in the summer of 1937. 








Below: 1946 and 1965 images of the same person shown superimposed in the middle. Although she had altered her famously recognizable image with some adjustments beyond what aging and style changes normally do, the former Amelia Earhart is displayed here.

In the mid-1940s, Amelia Earhart reappeared in the United States seemingly from out of nowhere to further exist as 'Irene.' The forensic analysis results made it plain to see the 'Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam' who Joseph A. Gervais met and photographed in 1965, dubbed in Tod Swindell's original forensic comparison analysis as the "Gervais-Irene" was NOT the original Irene Craigmile, even though post World War Two history proclaimed she was. This is true where the analysis clearly proved there was more than one Twentieth Century woman who used the same 'Irene' identity, and the one above, who was known as 'Mrs. Irene Bolam' after 1958, was previously known as 'Amelia Earhart.' Note: The forensic analysis merely displays the truth when it comes to what became of Amelia Earhart. Although it has been consistently shouted down by pseudo Amelia Earhart 'mystery solving theorists,' including some that managed to make a living by promoting non-truthful ideas to the masses about Amelia Earhart, the analysis results proved impossible to over-challenge.

At the 2000 ceremony, William Prymak spoke of Joseph A. Gervais in the following manner: "Joseph A. Gervais is a World War Two flying hero who went on to become widely recognized as the world's leading authority regarding the subject of Amelia Earhart's 1937 disappearance. A former aircraft accident investigator, while looking into Amelia Earhart's failed world flight attempt his encounter with Mrs. Irene Craigmile Bolam and follow-up evaluation of her life history caused an enormous shift to his angle of research."

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. This website 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, research and development specialist, Tod Swindell embarked on a twenty-year journey to return a more serious historical perspective to age-old missing persons case of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan. His efforts led to revisted some 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.

In 2017, Protecting Earhart's, Tod Swindell finalized and copyrighted his long term Irene Craigmile Bolam Versus Amelia Earhart forensic research and human comparison study. His study results enabled him to claim the forensic solving of Amelia Earhart's eight decades old missing person case in his name and in the names of his long-time collaborators, Randall Brink, Joseph A. Gervais (posthumously), Rollin C. Reineck (posthumously), and Joe Klaas (posthumously).

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 physical 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 Craigmile 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. It first received national notice in 2002 while it was in progress. 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 call 323-317-0886 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, along with much similar data Joseph Gervais and Rollin Reineck forwarded Tod's way after it was 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 some keen insight to this Earhart truth seeking endeavor when it was first getting underway in Santa Monica, CA in the mid-1990s.

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 Craigmile 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 "Amelia became Irene" assertion made by Joseph A. Gervais, inspired me to orchestrate the forensic analysis that ultimately proved their long held 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."
