Who was Time Magazine's first "Man of the Year"?

  • F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • Charles Lindbergh correct

    Charles Lindbergh was the first man to fly solo nonstop across the Atlantic Ocean, so it only makes sense that he is also the first Man of the Year. (How could we even NEED a man of the year before that?) In that year, 1927, TIME listed Lindbergh's characteristics as "Modesty, taciturnity, diffidence (women make him blush), singleness of purpose, courage, occasional curtness, phlegm." Sounds more like Man of the Century! Source: Time Magazine
