The Duffield Lindbergh Voyage exhibition featured photographs taken by ceramics teacher Nat Duffield’s great-grandfather, along with documents related to the journey. In 1933, Warren Duffield was the ship’s doctor on this famous Lindbergh expedition to map Pan American’s commercial flight routes to Europe. The Jelling was the follow ship on this exciting journey from Philadelphia to Greenland and then on to Iceland. The exhibition also features some precious photos of Ann Morrow Lindbergh and essays by Mr. Duffield, Mrs. Newton and Mr. Reynolds. The entire archive has been donated to the Yale University Library.
