    Identifier/Call Number: SDASM.SC .10089
    Physical Description: 3.5 Cubic Feet There are dozens of folders with an assortment of materials, including newspapers and newspaper clippings, documents, certificates, receipts, booklets, magazines, periodicals, photographs, negatives, envelopes, and correspondence. The collection contains information about Charles Lindbergh and people related to him, either through business or family. The majority of the collection regarding any biographical or historical information directly related to Lindbergh and his flight has been arranged by publishing date, starting from 1926, and ending in the 2000s.

Family matters, Lindbergh’s goggles and gliders, his house, tours and receptions, memorials, magazines, and more have been separated from the biographical papers and newspaper clips and organized into folders by topic. There are seven oversized papers – 5 papers from a magazine (back to back papers in one sleeve), one blue drawing from a magazine from a souvenir booklet, and the cover of a digest with Lindbergh’s face on it - in the Oversized Material Special Collection. It is stored in OMSC_00001. Additional Lindbergh documents can be found in the Autograph Special Collection. The Charles Lindbergh Collection is housed in three archival boxes each measuring 16 ½ x 13 x 10 ¼ inches.
