Charles Lindbergh became famous for making the first solo transatlantic airplane flight in 1927 in his plane, Spirit of St. Louis. he suffered a great tragedy in 1932, his 20-month-old son was kidnapped. The Lindbergh's paid the $50,000 ransom, but sadly their son's dead body was found in the nearby woods weeks later. The events made world news and added to Lindbergh's fame.
Concerned that German air power was unbeatable, Lindbergh became involved with the America First Organization, which advocated that the United States stay neutral in the war in Europe. His position on the war, eroded his public support, and some believed that he had Nazi sympathies. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, however, Lindbergh became active in the war effort, working with Henry Ford on bombers and acting as adviser and test pilot for United Aircraft.
After the war, Lindbergh wrote several books, including Of Flight and Life (1948) and The Spirit of St. Louis (1953), which won the 1954 Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography. He also lobbied for environmental preservation. In his later years, he and his wife moved to the Hawaiian island of Maui where he died in 1974.
Despite any personal controversies, Lindbergh is credited with helping to usher in the age of commercial aviation.
