In 1935 Amelia Earhart's husband, George Putnam, commissioned Albert Wood and Five Sons, of Port Washington, New York, to build a chest for her trophies, plaques, and memorabilia. Putnam conceived the wheel motif for the ebony feet. Wood designed the hand-carved motifs on the Burma teakwood representing three milestones: Earhart's 1932 transatlantic, 1935 Honolulu-Oakland, and 1935 Mexico City-Newark solo flights.
