Charles Lindbergh

Pioneer aviator Charles Lindbergh is best known for his solo flight from New York to Paris in 1927. His airplane, the Spirit of St. Louis, was financed by St. Louis businessmen, and he chose the Missouri History Museum as the repository of artifacts from his extraordinary career. The Lindbergh Collection features the gifts and trophies presented to Charles Lindbergh after his many flights in the Spirit of St. Louis as well as flights he made with his wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh. From the highest medals of honor from countries he visited, to luxurious manufactured goods and handmade tokens of appreciation from civilians, it covers an extraordinary range. The collection also includes Lindbergh's papers through the early 1940s and many photographs.
