This picture of Anne Morrow and Charles Lindbergh was taken in 1929 in New Mexico, where they had flown in to explore the cliff dwellings. They flew everywhere – landing in Japan, China, Stockholm, Maine, the Virgin Islands, and all along the coasts of Africa and South America. Anne was Charles’ co-pilot, as well as radio operator and navigator – she could plot their course through the skies by the stars. But she was first and foremost a writer. From a bookish family, she embraced the adventure of her life with Charles, writing about it in her letters, diaries, and best-selling books. Her style was lyrical, deeply influenced by poetry and the new, stream of consciousness modernists of the 1920s and ’30s, especially Virginia Woolf. In September 2016, a new State of the Arts documentary about Anne Morrow Lindbergh will premiere. Until then, visit Morven Museum & Garden to see Couple of an Age: Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, featured in this State of the Arts story.
