Anne Morrow Lindbergh(Anne Spencer Morrow Lindbergh)
Birthplace: Englewood, New Jersey
Known in her own right as a writer, she was also co-pilot and navigator for her husband, Charles Lindbergh. The couple met when Anne's father was ambassador to Mexico when Lindbergh came to visit and took the family on sight-seeing flights. Under her husband's tutelage, Anne earned her pilot's license in 1931. In the wake of the media feeding frenzy that accompanied the kidnapping and murder of the couple's twenty-month old son in 1932, they took on a five-month project of flying around the world to survey the proper airlines for transatlantic flights. She wrote and published books about their journeys. One of her most notable books,A Gift from the Sea (1955), reflects on the meaning of a woman's life. She continued to write and to add to her growing list of publications until her death in 2001.Died: Passumpsic, Vt, 2/7/2001
