Biographical note: Charles Lindbergh

Charles Augustus Lindbergh (February 4, 1902 – August 26, 1974), nicknamed Slim, Lucky Lindy, and The Lone Eagle, is best known as an American aviator. In 1927, at the age of 25, Lindbergh emerged from the virtual obscurity of a U.S. Air Mail pilot to instantaneous world fame as the result of his Orteig Prize-winning solo non-stop flight from Roosevelt Field on New York's Long Island to Le Bourget Field in Paris, France.

Custodial History

The Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) transferred these materials to The Museum of Flight in 2011 because they were outside their collecting scope. The items had no accession information, therefore previous provenance is unknown.


No further accruals are expected.
