RICHARD E. BYRD
First man to fly over the North Pole and the South Pole meets Charles Lindbergh, the first man to fly solo across the Atlantic.
Photograph signed: "R.E. Byrd". Sepia, 4x4. In 1926, Richard E. Byrd (1888-1957) and Floyd Bennett became the first to fly over the North Pole and were later awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for the feat. In 1929, Byrd and Bernt Balchen became the first to fly over the South Pole. When Charles A. Lindbergh took off from Roosevelt Field, Long Island on May 20, 1927, he had two competitors ready to make the flight from New York to Paris. Commander Richard E. Byrd, had his plane, America, ready to fly. Clarence Chamberlin, holder of the world's record for continuous flight (51 hours), was also ready to take off. Byrd and Chamberlin were waiting for clear weather. Lindbergh, knowing his competitors would wait for better weather, took off in unfavorable weather conditions. Byrd congratulated Lindbergh in festivities held in Washington, D.C. on June 14, 1927. Fifteen days later, on June 29, 1927, Byrd and a three-man crew crossed the Atlantic. Adequate contrast. Light thumbprint-size stain (not evident head on) at Byrd's lapel. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Soiled on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
