Elizabeth Gardner of the USA’s wartime WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots).

This status was finally granted retrospectively, in 1977.

In 1931 Sue Eakin, a white girl in Louisiana, saw a dusty, old book called "Twelve Years a Slave." She found a copy for herself a bit later - and spent 70 years rescuing it from obscurity and doggedly proving it was factual. "Her passion was history, getting the history out.” In 1968 she got it back into print. In 2007, at 88, she published an edition with maps and pictures. She wrote in the acknowledgments, “Now Solomon and I can rest.” Two years later, she died. A great story at the click.
