Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Year Inducted: 
1999

Anne Morrow Lindbergh promoted aviation from its earliest days and has, in turn, inspired many women. Lindbergh was the first woman to earn a glider pilot's license in the U.S. She was determined to help her husband Charles on his pioneer routes for the airlines industry. In order to do so, she learned Morse Code and earned a radio operator's license. Today, Lindbergh is best known as a writer. Her early books are eloquent travelogues of pioneering adventures in the air. Her natural tendency towards quiet introspection and observation came to fruition in literary works that remain among her greatest contributions to aviation. She died in 2001.
