Aviators, Authors, and Environmentalists: Exploring the Lindbergh Papers and Photographs in Manuscripts & Archives

The manuscript materials and photographs in Manuscripts & Archives documenting Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh and their families comprise a rich resource for the study of a wide array of topics relating to the United States and the rest of the world from the 1920s to the 1970s. This exhibit celebrates the formal opening of the Lindbergh collections to researchers and spans a wide array of materials. These include pioneering contributions to aviation and commercial passenger airline service; activities that contributed to the success of the United States' efforts during World War II; far-sighted engagement with and support of early wildlife and land conservation efforts worldwide; and careers as celebrated and widely read authors. The exhibit explores the importance of the Lindberghs' endeavors and highlights the expected and unexpected gems that research in archival collections can uncover. The exhibit, on view in SML's Memorabilia Room from February 4 – May 20, is curated by Manuscripts & Archives staff members. For more information contact mssa.reference@yale.edu or (203) 432-1744.
