Anne Lindbergh was raised in Darien, Connecticut. After studying at Radcliffe College for three years, she moved to Paris to continue her education, studying at the Sorbonne. She met and married a fellow student there, Julien Feydy, who later became a political scientist and university professor. They later divorced.[1]

She later married Jerzy Sapieyevski, a composer and conductor she met in Europe and with whom she moved to Washington. They also divorced.[1] She was married to Noel Perrin, American essayist and a professor at Dartmouth College, at the time of her death. They lived together in Thetford Center, Vermont.[2]
