Timeline

1908 - In the year that Arvilla Carpenter was born, a 7.1 earthquake and the resulting tsunami killed 70,000 to 100,000 people in southern Italy and Sicily.

The North American flight became one of her many "firsts" as a female pilot.

1967 - She was 59 years old when on November 7th, President Johnson signed legislation passed by Congress that created the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), which would later become PBS and NPR.
