Two of America's most accomplished women died yesterday. Anne Morrow Lindbergh, wife of Charles Lindbergh, was her husband's co-pilot and navigator, as well as the author of 13 books. Dale Evans, wife of TV cowboy Roy Rogers, was an actress, singer, and songwriter. Lindbergh was the first woman to earn a glider pilot's license, and Evans wrote the famous tune, Happy Trails.
