Lindbergh, Charles A. (1902-1974)

The following sources are recommended by an expert whose research specialty is American aviator Charles Lindbergh.


Six Superlative Sources

· Berg, A. Scott. Lindbergh. G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1998. Definitive biography and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for biography. First biography written with unfettered access to the Lindberghs' private papers at Yale University Library.

· Lindbergh, Charles A. The Spirit of St. Louis. Charles Scribner's Sons, 1953. Won the Pulitzer Prize for biography in 1954 and is still the best account of Lindbergh's historic transatlantic flight, as well as the events leading up to and surrounding it.

· Lindbergh, Charles A. An Autobiography of Values. Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1976. Edited by Judith Schiff and William Jovanovich from Lindbergh's manuscript and published after his death. Best reflection of Lindbergh's philosophy of balance concerning science, individual life, and human values.

· Luckett, Perry D. Charles A. Lindbergh: A Bio-Bibliography. Greenwood Press, 1986. Excellent starting point for students, because it includes a brief biography, an assessment of Lindbergh's place in American society and popular culture, a thorough bibliographical essay (though dated to 1984), and a chronology of Lindbergh's life. Lots of information in a short, accessible space.

· Ross, Walter S. The Last Hero: Charles A. Lindbergh. 2nd edition. Harper and Row, 1976. Before Berg's biography, this was the best book about Lindbergh's life. Balanced approach points out Lindbergh's shortcomings while recognizing his remarkable character and achievements.

· Fisher, Jim. The Lindbergh Case. Rutgers University Press, 1994. The most thorough account of an infamous part of Lindbergh's life: the kidnapping and murder of his first son, Charles. Included among these superlative sources about Lindbergh, because lately so many people have learned about him through sensational, often inaccurate, books about this kidnapping.
