portrait of Anne Morrow Lindbergh


Born: 22 June 1906, Englewood, New Jersey
Died: 7 February 2001, Passumpsic, Vermont

Born Anne Spencer Morrow, after graduating from The Chapin School at New York City Anne earned her BA from Smith College where her mother was a trustee. She met Charles Lindbergh in Mexico while her father was a partner at J. P. Morgan, by the time they were married in 1929 Mr Morrow was the US ambassador to Mexico. Anne soon learned to fly and the Lindberghs flew over 40,000 miles together charting potential international air routes. Their first son was kidnapped at 20 months, the media attention from the kidnapping, investigation, discovery of the child's body, and the trial drove the Lindberghs to live in seclusion in Europe. During that period they became convinced that fascism, or something similar, was the regrettable "wave of the future", and they opposed the US entry into World War II. This stance destroyed their good public image in the US, but their writing after the war largely restored their stature. Anne's "Gift from the Sea" was a significant element in both the environmental and feminist movements.
