    Description

    Charles Lindbergh Autograph Letter Signed "Charles A. Lindbergh". One page, 8.5" x 11", Hawaii, February 9, 1969. Lindbergh writes to Miss Lola Morrow, of the Astronaut Support Office at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, regarding copies of a NASA flight book, which Marrow requested he sign. The letter reads in part: "I have been travelling [sic] in Europe and Asia, and out of contact with my mail. Your January 8th note and list of astronauts catches up with me here in Hawaii. Many thanks. I'll get the books off as soon as I can after I return to my home in Connecticut later this week." The great aviator provides his Connecticut mailing address and ends with a brief note asking Miss Morrow if the books should be sent to her business address in Florida. The signed books were distributed to the Apollo 11 astronauts, who would make their historic landing on the moon a few months after this letter was penned.

    Also included is the original transmittal envelope which has a return address of "Lindbergh/ 21 Tokeneke Trail/ Darien, Conn." The letter is matted together with a handsome black and white photograph of a young Lindbergh. Framed to an overall size of 20" x 16.25", the letter is in very fine condition and makes an excellent addition to any aviation collection.
