Charles A. Lindbergh Photograph Signed to an Aviator/Hero of World War I

Before the U.S. got involved in World War I, Alan F. Winslow served with the legendary Lafayette Escadrille in France. In 1918, now an officer in the U.S. Army’s air service, he and Douglas Cambell shot down the first two German airplanes to fall victim to American aviators with General Pershing’s expeditionary forces. On August 13, 1918, Winslow was shot down and reported killed in action over France. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross. At war’s end, he was discovered in a German hospital where he had been treated after surviving the crash but losing his arm. After the war, he became assistant chief of Pan American Airways’ foreign department.

In 1928, a year after his historic flight, Lindbergh became a technical advisor to Pan American Airways, a relationship that would prove long-lasting. While there, he became acquinted with Winslow.

An 9 by 12 inch photograph of Lindbergh circa 1928-1932, inscribed and signed “To Mr. and Mrs. Alan F. Winslow, sincerely, Charles A. Lindbergh.” The photograph can be approximately dated because Winslow’s luck finally ran out in 1933, when he died at age 37 in a fall from a third-floor hotel window.
