My name is Brian Horrigan, and I am an exhibit curator at the Minnesota Historical Society, where most recently I developed The 1968 Exhibit and the Minnesota’s Greatest Generation exhibit. During the academic year 2011-12, I was a fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study at the University of Minnesota, under the auspices of a Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
In 2001-02, I worked on a research project on Lindbergh as a memoirist and autobiographer, and I have now returned to that core research, and am writing a book that will look more broadly at Lindbergh as a cultural figure in 20th-century American history.
This blog is meant as a way of posting news items and links to other site, for developing some ideas that may find their way into the book, and as a forum for others to comment on those ideas.

Very cool Brian. I look forward to learning more about your progress on this new project. John and I are still trying to get over to see the 1968 Exhibit. Keep up the great work!
