Charles Lindbergh’s trip to Japan 1931: Dinner Party 3

This is my last post about the Lindbergh party. In addition to the items mentioned in my last two posts, I have an envelope addressed to a person who attended the party:

Sent on 8/26/1931 via express mail. Also a seating chart:

On the reverse of this is an order of the proceedings written in Japanese. Finally, 2 more documents complete the group. One is a sheet that must have come with the invitation, as it lists the price and the way to respond to the invitation. (Male guests had to pay 10 yen and females 5 yen.) There was also a notice stating that the dining room was full and that members who want to take part in the dinner had to sit in a separate room. That must have been disappointing, since the whole point of the dinner was to see and hear the famous Charles Lindbergh.

I hope you have been interested in this little set I found.

  1. I recently acquired a CAM 2 cover collection which also contained covers and newspaper clippings for Lindburgh’s flight to Japan. It also included the dinner program you described. I showed the dinner program to three advanced Lindburgh collectors. None had ever seen one previously. This makes me wonder how scarce this item might be. Do you have any information in this area?

    • Sorry, I have no clue about the scarcity.
