Amelia Earhart is the daughter of the couple Edwin Earhart and Amy Earhart who was born in her grandfather's house. The grandfather, Alfred Otis is a former federal judge who actually did not approve of the marriage of his daughter, Amy with Edwin Earhart, causing a messy domestic relationship.

Amelia Earhart's Childhood and Her Education
Little Amelia is a tomboyish child, based on some opinions is the impact of the mess of her parents' homes. Amelia and her sister, Muriel stayed with her grandfather at Atchison until she was 12 years old. When Amelia was 10, the sanga yah who at that time worked as an executive at a railway company got promotion and eventually moved to the Des Moines area. Her father once invited Amelia and her sister to see an airplane in the Iowa section, only then Amelia flirted with interest in the plane.

Before attending a formal school, Amelia had an informal lesson with her mother, Amy, who works as a teacher. It was not until 1909 when his whole family came back together that Amelia started going to public school and was in seventh grade. Amelia's father had a frequent drinking problem, which forced her to retire in 1914. In 1915, Amelia's father found work on the Great Notrthern Railway as a scribe. Then Amy Earhat took Amelia to Chicago and stayed at her friend's house. Amelia continued her high school at Hyde Park High School and graduated in 1916. She studied at Ogontz, Rydal, Pennsylvania, but eventually she did not finish college.

Amelia had become a nursing assistant and worked at Spadina Military Hospital in Toronto, Ontario. He continued his work as a nursing assistant until a ceasefire that marked the end of World War I period signed in 1918 exactly in November.
