Despite her husband Charles Lindbergh often grabbing the headlines, National Aviation Hall of Fame enshrinee Anne Morrow was a prominent figure in early aviation. She often accompanied her husband on his long journeys, working as the navigator and garnering interest in flight. She graduated from Smith College in 1928 and won multiple awards for her literary works. She often journaled on these aviation trips and began a career in writing non-fiction aviation novels. Her work inspired young girls across America to take on the challenge of flying. She and her husband famously proved how valuable aviation was as a tool for surveying when they discovered the ruins of the Pueblo tribe in Colorado, photographing them and returning with a survey team. Anne Morrow would continue her aerial surveying expeditions, and through her efforts, the first aerial photographs of previously undiscovered Mayan ruins in Mexico and Guatemala were taken.
