Charles A. Lindbergh Memorial, St. Paul

On May 24, 1985, the sculpture “Charles Lindbergh—The Boy and The Man” by Paul T. Granlund was dedicated in front of a crowd of approximately 1,000 people on the grounds of the Minnesota State Capitol. Commissioned by the Lindbergh Fund and the Minnesota Historical Society, it honored the aviator’s 1927 transatlantic flight and his childhood roots in Minnesota. It did not incorporate Lindbergh’s support of American isolationism and antisemitism leading up to World War II—additional dimensions of his complex legacy.
