Charles Lindbergh Autographed Commemorative Menu
Charles Lindbergh (1902-1974) came to fame with his Orteig prize-winning solo non-stop flight from New York to Paris in 1927. The U.S. army reserve officer travelled a distance of nearly 3,600 statute miles in the Spirit of St. Louis, a single-seat, single-engine monoplane. He was awarded the Medal of Honour for this exploit, the nation's highest military decoration.
In addition to being an aviator, Lindbergh was an accomplished author, explorer, inventor and social activist.
After Lindbergh returned from his historic flight across the Atlantic solo, he commenced with a flying tour of the U.S., landing in every state. Of the 80 cities that he visited, many hosted dinners in his honour. This dinner menu is from one such event, 7" x 4½", held on 17th September 1927 at the Hotel Senator in Sacremento, California. The pilot has signed the cover in blank ink, "C.A. Lindbergh".
The commemorative dinner menu is mounted for display with a magazine portrait of Lindbergh, measuring 12" x 20¼" overall.
