After the race, he retired for good. The purse was $27,550 - the largest offered up to that time - and Harroun received $10,000 for first place. His average time was 74.602 mph.

1928 - Amelia was 17 years old when Mickie Mouse was born! He first appeared in Disney's Steamboat Willie, along with Minnie.

It became the most popular cartoon of its day.

1988 - At the age of 77 years old, Amelia was alive when on December 21st, Pan Am Flight 103 exploded over Lockerbie Scotland. The explosion killed all 259 people on board and another 11 on the ground. The flight had left Heathrow Airport in London less than an hour before, on its way to New York. After an exhaustive (and long) investigation it came to be believed that two individuals from Libya had planted the bomb.
