When JFK Met A Troll Doll
In 1963, a troll doll had a formal White House visit with the president.
In 1963, Betty Miller became the first female pilot to fly solo across the Pacific Ocean.
In recognition of her accomplishment, President Kennedy invited her to the White House to award her with the Federal Aviation Administration’s Gold Medal for Exceptional Service.
But Miller didn’t come alone; she brought her lucky troll doll named "Dammit," who had accompanied her on the record-setting flight.
