Update to the Charles Lindbergh Story — Larry Clark

Linda,

I wanted to post this in your Lindbergh story but couldn’t see how to attach this photo. It was found amongst Beth’s grandfather’s photos but don’t know how he would have obtained it. I am almost certain that it is Lindbergh, probably taken on his trip to Alaska and the Orient.

I would think this was his stopover in Baker Lake. A few years ago, I tried to get in contact with the Lindbergh museum but they were closed at the time-I intend to try again as I would like to ascertain whether or not the photo is a one off or a stock photo. The aviatrix  beside him would be Ann Morrow, his wife. Thought you might be interested-feel free to post it to your story.Larry

  1. Beth’s grandfather Will Slade served in WW1 but was prevented from going overseas by the actions of his wife (who was quite a force-during her career as a poet/writer she wrote to almost every head of state including the queen (princess) and many prominent politicians as she wrote limericks and poetry and used this medium to promote her works) so he served with a railroad/forestry company in Canada. Had a career working for the Federal Government and eventually as a commissionaire, died in Ottawa at the age of 95.
