Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh Foundation "was created in 1977, the 50th Anniversary year of Charles Lindbergh's epic New York-to-Paris flight. It was originated by friends of the Lindberghs at The Explorers Club in New York City and other friends and admirers.

"The resulting national effort that established the organization was led by General James H. Doolittle and Astronaut Neil Armstrong. Also instrumental in its creation was James D. Newton, longtime, close friend of Charles and Anne Lindbergh, who was Honorary Chairman until his death in 1999.

"Their intent was to honor the Lindberghs' pioneering contributions in aviation, exploration, conservation, sciences, and the humanities. Knowing the Lindberghs' vision of a balance between the technological advancements they helped pioneer, and the preservation of the human and natural environments they cherished, it was decided that this balance vision would become the cornerstone of the Foundation's programs. Ever since, the Foundation has strived to carry on the concept of balance, through the Lindbergh Award, the Lindbergh Grants Program, and other educational programs and publications." [1]
