    Charles A. Lindbergh Dinner Menu/Program Signed "C.A. Lindbergh" on the cover beneath a photo of him. Four pages, 6" x 9.25", City of Pittsburgh, August 3, 1927." On the afternoon of July 20, 1927, funded by the Daniel Guggenheim Fund for Promotion of Aeronautics, Lindbergh and the "Spirit of St. Louis" began a tour of the United States, leaving Mitchel Field, Long Island, for Hartford, Connecticut. When he arrived in Bettis Field, Pittsburgh over 10,000 people greeted Lindbergh on August 3rd. With over 250,000 cheering men, women, and children lining the streets, he made the 15 mile ride from to Pitt Stadium seated in an automobile beside Pittsburgh Mayor Charles H. Kline. Another 50,000 filled the stadium to hear Lindbergh speak. That evening at the William Penn Hotel, a banquet was given in his honor. The menu/program is lightly soiled inside and on the back cover. Accompanied by the rare 4" x 6" printed card distributed at the dinner, "Compliments of / William Penn Hotel / Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania," reproducing the May 21, 1927 editorial from the New York Sun entitled "Lindbergh Flies Alone." Both items in fine condition.
