Charles Augustus Lindbergh and Anne Spencer Morrow Lindbergh went on a survey flight in 1933 in their Lockheed Model 8 Sirius (which was named Tingmissartoq during this trip). Lindbergh was technical advisor for Pan American Airways (Pan Am) and was sent to research possible transatlantic flight paths. The Lindberghs flew from New York to Newfoundland, then to Europe via Labrador, Greenland, and Iceland. They visited several European cities before flying down the coast of Africa and across the Atlantic to South America. They then flew down the Amazon before going back north to New York. The trip covered 30,000 miles, four continents, and 21 countries. One of their stops was Lisbon, Portugal.

Germano de Faria Moura Júnior (1901-1980) served with the Portuguese Naval Aeronautical Service, becoming a second lieutenant in 1924, and attaining the rank of first lieutenant in 1942. He, along with other members of the Naval Aeronautical Service, met with Charles Lindbergh when the Lindberghs stopped in Lisbon on their 1933 survey flight.

Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of a single oversized black and white print photograph (29 3/4 x 40 inches) depicting Charles A. Lindbergh with U.S. Ambassador Myron T. Herrick in an open horse-drawn carriage passing in front of the Arc de Triomphe, Paris, France. The photographic print is an elaborate composite image, assembled from several different photographs and extensively retouched. On a background of the Arc de Triomphe photographed during a celebration or commemorative ceremony is placed an image of the back half of an open barouche carriage (right foreground) followed by a mounted Garde Républicaine honor guard (center); Ambassador Herrick's head has replaced that of the original seated dignitary, and an image of a grinning Lindbergh standing and waving his hat has been added beside Herrick. A group of three young women waving American flags has been inserted behind the carriage. According to family lore, this photograph was given to the donor's grandmother in the early 1930s by a customer in exchange for bread at the family's New York City bakery.
Arrangement:
Just one item.
Biographical / Historical:
On May 21, 1927, Charles Augustus Lindbergh completed the first solo nonstop transatlantic flight in history, flying his Ryan NYP Spirit of St. Louis 5,810 kilometers (3,610 miles) between Roosevelt Field on Long Island, New York, and Paris, France, in 33 hours, 30 minutes. With this flight, Lindbergh won the $25,000 prize offered by New York hotel owner Raymond Orteig to the first aviator to fly an aircraft directly across the Atlantic between New York and Paris. When he landed at Le Bourget Field in Paris, Lindbergh became a world hero who would remain in the public eye for decades.

Date:

Scope and Contents:
This 16 by 22 inch scrapbook was originally a sample book for the Globe Tailoring Company; the samples were removed from the book which was then used as a scrapbook. The scrapbook consists of newspaper articles, mostly focusing on Charles Lindbergh's New York to Paris flight, as well as his subsequent Guggenheim US Good Will Tour. At the end to the scrapbook there are articles relating to the other contestants' flight attempts for the Raymond Orteig Prize, including Richard Byrd and Floyd Bennett, as well as a few articles referencing the crew and flight of the Junkers W 33 b Bremen, the first successful transatlantic flight from east to west, April 12-13, 1928.
Biographical / Historical:
Charles Augustus Lindbergh (1902-1974), was born in Detroit, Michigan, on February 4, 1902. He began his flying career in 1922, studying aeronautics with the Nebraska Aircraft Corporation. In 1924 he enrolled as a flying cadet in the Army Air Service at Brooks Field, Texas and in 1926 became a airmail pilot, flying the route from St. Louis to Chicago. In 1927 he obtained backing to compete for the Raymond Orteig prize of {dollar}25,000 offered for the first nonstop flight between New York and Paris. Lindbergh took off on May 20, 1927, flying alone in the Spirit of St. Louis. Thirty-three hours thirty minutes later, he landed at LeBourget Field near Paris, where over 100,000 people had gathered to give him an enthusiastic welcome. After the flight Lindbergh flew to various countries as part of a good will tour. During this time he met Anne Spencer Morrow, who he married in 1929. Beyond his accomplishments in aviation, Lindbergh also worked on the invention of an artificial heart between 1931 and 1935 with the French surgeon Alexis Carrel. Lindbergh's personal life was marked by tragedy when the Lindberghs' 20-month-old son, Charles Augustus, Jr., was kidnapped and murdered. Charles Lindbergh was to later to encounter criticism stemming from his isolationist views and membership in America First Committee before War World II. During the war he was sent to the Pacific as an advisor to the US Army and Navy. After the Allied victory, Lindbergh worked as a aviation consultant for Pan American World Airways. In 1953 he wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Spirit of St. Louis. His later years were spent in conservation work.

Summary:
This collection consists of approximately 6.05 cubic feet of material relating to Charles Lindbergh including photograph albums; scrapbooks; postcards; photographs; philately; sheet music; records; film; CDs (data and audio); videotapes; flyers; articles; advertisements; reception ephemera; magazines; and labels.
Scope and Contents:
The Stanley King collection was donated to the Museum in 2002, and the archival material was later transferred to the Archives. The archival material includes photograph albums; scrapbooks; postcards; photographs; philately; sheet music; records; film; CDs (data and audio); videotapes; flyers; articles; advertisements; reception ephemera; magazines; and labels. The thirteen photo albums, arranged chronologically from 1927-1938, include some lovely photographs of Anne Lindbergh and their flights in the Lockheed Sirius "Tingmissartoq;" Lindbergh's tour through Mexico and South America; and the kidnapping of Charles Lindbergh, Jr. and the subsequent trial. The four scrapbooks consists of newspaper clippings (with a few pieces of sheet music) relating mostly to the 1927 flight.
Biographical / Historical:
On May 20-21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh literally flew into history when he crossed the Atlantic Ocean in his Ryan NYP Spirit of St. Louis, thus becoming the first pilot to fly solo and nonstop from New York to Paris. This flight made Lindbergh a household name and catapulted him into fame and celebrity. Composed of more than 400 artifacts and archival items, this collection illustrates the popular culture phenomenon that turned the reserved young pilot from Minnesota into the first media superstar of the 20th century. The colorful assortment of commemorative toys, pins, games, bottles, jewelry, hats and pennants was collected by Lindbergh enthusiast Stanley King over several decades and donated to the museum in 2002. Most of the items were mass-merchandised to the public as Lindbergh toured the United States and Latin America in the years immediately following the New York-to-Paris flight. The artifacts and archival material reflect the public adulation for Lindbergh and the powerful commercial response to his celebrity. More than 75 years after the Spirit's historic flight, Lindbergh's name still has the power help sell manufactured goods

Charles H. Land (1847-1922) was born in Simcoe, Ontario, Canada. Educated in New York, Land studied dentistry under J.B. Meacham of Canada and from 1864-1866 joined the offices of Drs. Sherwood, Haskell and Allport in Chicago, Illinois. From 1871 until his death in 1922, Land practiced dentistry in Detroit, Michigan. In 1875, he married Evangeline Lodge of Detroit and had two children, Charles H., Jr., and Evangeline. Land originated the "Land System of Dentistry" which included many of his patented processes, especially the adaptation of porcelain to dental restorations. Many of his patents deal with devices to aid porcelain work.
