Title: Charles Augustus Lindbergh Papers
Aviator, scientist, writer, and conservationist.
Correspondence, journals, logbooks, notebooks, financial and legal documents, literary productions, printed material, maps, sheet music, stamps, and scrapbooks. Much of the material pertains to Lindbergh's 1927 transatlantic flight from New York to Paris, including Lindbergh's preparations for the flight and the world's response to the event. Additional papers record Lindbergh's interest during the 1930s in the promotion and development of aviation, his pursuit of a scientific career at the Rockefeller Institute in New York City where he collaborated with French biologist Dr. Alexis Carrel in developing the perfusion pump, and the beginnings of the distinguished literary careers of both Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh. The papers also contain some material regarding the kidnapping of the Lindberghs' son in 1932, and the public's response to Lindbergh's radio addresses in 1940 advocating non-intervention of the United States in the impending war in Europe.
