Lindbergh Exhibit Opens

Aviators, Authors, and EnvironmentalistsThe manuscript materials and photographs in Manuscripts & Archives documenting Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh and their families comprise rich resources for the study of a wide array of topics relating to the United States and the rest of the world during the decades from the 1920s to the 1970s. This exhibit celebrates the formal opening to research of the Lindbergh collections. From pioneering contributions to aviation and commercial passenger airline service, to activities that contributed to the success of the United States’ efforts during World War II, to far-sighted engagement with and support of early wildlife and land conservation efforts worldwide, to careers as celebrated and widely read authors, the exhibit explores the importance of the Lindberghs’ endeavors and highlights the expected and unanticipated gems that research in archival collections can uncover. The exhibit is on display from February 4—April 20, 2013, in the Sterling Memorial Library Memorabilia Room.
