The Missouri History Museum will process, survey, and make publicly accessible the 1,894 objects in its Charles A. Lindbergh Collection. Objects include diverse personal items, gifts associated with Lindbergh's 1927 transatlantic flight and publicity tours, and wedding gifts presented to Charles and his wife Anne. The museum will hire two collections specialists and one special projects photographer, overseen by its collections manager, to perform the work. Conservators specializing in objects, paintings, paper, and textiles will perform detailed conservation surveys. Full records with digitized images will be made publicly accessible via the museum's online collections portal. The project will be the first phase of an eight-year, multistage collections initiative culminating in 2027 with the centennial of Lindbergh's legendary transatlantic flight.
