An O'Sullivan may have solved the Amelia Earhart mystery!
Photos unearthed by a Christchurch archivist could help finally solve a 75-year-old mystery: What happened to Amelia Earhart?
The photos found by Matthew O'Sullivan, the keeper of photographs at the Air Force Museum in Christchurch, could prove Earhart spent her final days as a castaway on a remote island north of New Zealand, and that she didn't, as some believe, die in a plane crash.

The Sullivan Memorial
Kannerimukku is where John Sullivan fell in love with the hills and discovered Ooty, writes SUBHA J RAO
January 8, 1819, Dimbatty Valley. Sitting in a valley kissed by the clouds, Collector of Coimbatore, John Sullivan, 31, wrote to Sir Thomas Munro, Governor of Madras: “My dear Colonel, I have been in the Highlands for the last week. This is the finest country… it resembles I suppose Switzerland more than any other part of Europe… it freezes here every night, this morning we found ice in our Water chatties (clay pots).”
Nearly two centuries later, the valley still retains part of the charm that captivated Sullivan, who went on to found Ooty, the first hill station in India. On a wet June afternoon, the tea plantations and vegetable patches shimmer a bright green. In a way, they are a tribute to Sullivan. For, it was he who introduced European fruit trees, vegetables and flowers to the hills and suggested that the British cultivate tea there.
When he first trekked up the Neilgherry (as the Nilgiris were then known) with a contingent of soldiers, elephants and ponies (who were disbanded halfway), it was through dense shola-filled forests and steep cliffs. During his second visit to Dimbatty (which means soft, pillow like) valley, Sullivan set up a camp. Later, it became a two-storey structure called Pethakal bungalow, named after a sacred stone that existed there. Sullivan lived there till 1823. In the five-acre property, he experimented with cultivation of potato and other English vegetables such as cabbage, beetroot and carrot. In the 1820s, the spud finally made its appearance in Ooty.

Woody Sullivan, "Sundial Nut"
Woody Sullivan is obsessed with sundials. In fact, the UW astronomy professor calls himself a “sundials nut.” Rebecca Cummins, a professor in the UW school of art, creates art that manipulates light and shadows.
These two interests made Sullivan and Cummins the perfect pair to create two unique sundials at the Exploratorium, a hands-on science museum in San Francisco.

Captain Thomas Sullivan
As fire consumed the home on Wyndham Lane here early Tuesday, it was not any of the eight fire alarms that roused Thomas Sullivan Jr. It was, he would say later, the screams of warning from his father.
The father, Thomas Sullivan Sr., 49, a police captain in Larchmont, N.Y., did not get out of the burning house in time. He stayed back in the two-story residence where his wife, Donna, 48, and daughters Meaghan, 18 and Mairead, 13, remained in their bedrooms.
