At the time, the Teapot Dome scandal was seen as "greatest and most sensational scandal in the history of American politics".

1932 - At the age of 38 years old, Peter was alive when five years to the day after Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic, Amelia Earhart flew solo from Newfoundland to Ireland, the first woman to cross the Atlantic solo and the first to replicate Lindbergh's feat.
