Tuesday, August 9, 1927

We saw Lindy! All but Daddy. Dale and Dick went down town to see him and I took the other three and went out to Mama’s and we all walked down to 38th St. and saw him pass along going to the fairgrounds.

(Aunt Marjorie wrote, "Charles Lindberg was all the rage those days. When I was in my teens, I went downtown to see Corrigan after he mistakenly flew to Ireland, I think, instead of across the United States.")

  1. How cool that Marjorie saw Lindberg!

    When I was a kid people still would jokingly call someone "Wrong-Way Corrigan" when they made wrong turns in traffic.
