Summary:
This collection contains photographs of Charles Augustus Lindbergh taken during his time in the Pacific during World War II.
Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of nine photographs, most of which are duplicates (there are two different images), of Charles Augustus Lindbergh taken during his time in the Pacific during World War II. The photographs are of various sizes ranging from 2.5 x 3.75 inches up to 8 x 10 inches. Both images were taken in May 1944 on the Green Islands, in the Australian Territory of New Guinea. One shows Lindbergh in the cockpit of a Vought F4U Corsair and the second is an informal group photo of Lindbergh with some members of the Marine Fighting Squadron 223 (VMF-223) who are identified as Edward Firestone, Vincent Lipovsky, and Henry Emery, taken after they all returned from a combat mission over New Britain and New Ireland, Papua New Guinea.
Arrangement:
Collection is in original order.
Biographical / Historical:
After the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, Charles Lindbergh asked to be recommissioned in the US Army Air Corps but was declined by order of the White House. Lindbergh then served as an advisor to Ford on the conversion from automobile to bomber production and later worked with United Aircraft and was sent by them to the Pacific as a technical consultant relating to Vought F4U Corsairs. While in the Pacific Theater, Lindbergh flew a number of combat missions as a civilian in both Vought F4U Corsair and Lockheed P-38 Lightning aircraft with various US Marine and US Army Air Corps groups including the Marine Fighting Squadrons 222 and 223 (VMF-222 and VMF-223) and the 433rd Fighter Squadron Satan's Angels.
