2. Not me, but my Dad met both
Eleanor Roosevelt and Amelia Earhart at the same time. It was in the early 1930s and my grandparents were active members of the National Geographic Society and went to all the monthly luncheons. One time my grandfather was sick so my grandmother took my Dad instead. The guest speaker that day was Amelia Earhart. After it was all over, my Dad and his Mom were walking through the hallways and came upon Eleanor Roosevelt and Amelia Earhart, and the 4 of them had a polite conversation for 3 or 4 minutes. My Dad was 14 so this was probably in 1931 I think. Many years later, Gloria Steinem came over to have dinner with my grandparents at their home in Chevy Chase.
