Hawaii, 1970, Charles Lindbergh autograph on typed correspondence to a Miss Cunningham from Hawaii dated Jan. 8, 1970. Letter regarding reading of a manuscript. Black and white photo of Lindbergh in front of the Spirit of St. Louis by Underwood on left. Picture and letter are on dark green mat. Lindbergh (1902-1974) was an aviator who at 25 flew in his a single-seat, single-engine purpose built Ryan monoplane the Spirit of St. Louis across the Atlantic non-stop from Long Island to Paris covering 3600 miles and was the first person to accomplish this. In 1932 his first child was kidnapped from their home and later killed at what at the time was considered the “Crime of the Century “. Due to the coverage a law ( “Lindbergh Law “)was passed that made kidnapping a federal offense . The Lindbergh also imposed upon themselves a self exile to Europe where they lived for three years away from the public attention he received in the U.S. Later in life he became a consultant for various aviation companies and was also a advocate of Goddard's rocket propulsion work.
