Jon Lindbergh (Newsreel image of his father Charles Lindbergh carrying him on arriving in England in 1936)


American underwater deep-sea diver who worked as a United States Navy demolition expert and as a commercial diver, and was one of the world's earliest aquanauts in the 1960s. He was also a pioneer in cave diving, and one of the children of aviators Charles Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh.

In November 1953, when still in college, he made the news tragically when a member of his mountaineering group fell to his death on the slopes of Mt. Shasta, California.

He married twice and had eight children. His first daughter was born on 10 December 1961 in Portland, Oregon. His son Erik Lindbergh (born 1965) became an aviator, adventurer, and artist.

Jon Lindbergh died from renal cancer in Lewisburg, West Virginia, on 29 July 2021 at the age of 88.

Source Notes

Originally this entry had 6:35AM EDT with the source notes: Dr. Plummer quotes news report in AQ Winter/1932. Garth Allen in AA 3/1962 quotes one of the attending physicians, "The delivery was accomplished a few minutes after 6:30 AM EST." Both times were specifically given as EST, though New York was on daylight time.

Sy Scholfield quotes news report not stating EST nor EDT: "Second Son Is Born to the Lindberghs At the Morrow Home in Englewood," New York Times, 17 Aug. 1932, p. 1: "Aug. 16 . . . born . . . shortly after 6:30 a.M. today."

On 1 October 2014, Scholfield changed the time to 7:30AM EDT (=6:30AM EST), quoting a telegram from the family in "Col. Lindbergh Urges Privacy for New Boy," Washington Post, 17/8/1932, p. 1: "Englewood, N.J., Aug. 16 ... The new baby was born at 7:30 a.m. today." It seems that the time given by the family as 7:30am [EDT] was possibly converted by the New York Times (and doctors quoted above) to 6:30am [EST].
