Description
Photographs and documents related to members of the San Luis Obispo Chapter of the Ninety Nines, an international organization of licensed women pilots.
Background
"In 1931, Amelia Earhart was elected the first President, and the group selected the name "Ninety-Nines" to represent the 99 charter members. Membership was immediately opened to other women as they became licensed pilots. The Ninety-Nines, Inc. is an international organization of licensed women pilots from 44 countries with thousands of members throughout the world. The Ninety-Nines are a non-profit, charitable membership corporation holding 501(c)(3) U.S. tax status. The International Headquarters is located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma."
