"The Lindbergh Foundation awarded grants to scientists seeking to discover a healthy balance between technology and nature, often through environmental research. The amount of the grant was uniformly $10,580—the price Lindbergh paid for the plane he flew to Paris in 1927." Elmer was the foundation's president from 1982 to 1985, and chairman of the board in 1986 and 1987.
