COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY ORAL HISTORY - EDMUND DELONG 1962
Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part4 Part 5 Part 6
Thanks to DeLong's wife and the fact that they were from Princeton, he was the first reporter to arrive at the Highfields estate.
You really MUST read what Ed
De Long had to say if you are a student of the Lindbergh kidnapping case!
The interview includes allusions to Condon and his problems with the Board of Education, Betty Gow allegedly requesting a virginity test and being referred to as a bovine, reporter Francis Jamieson being unscrupulous in obtaining news stories, a high-powered car used in the abduction of the baby, Henry's Breckinridge's chauffeur at the Baltimore Dairy Lunchroom to obtain coffee and supplies for troops at Highfields, and so much more!
I've alluded to the above in posts from the past.
Also, if you have copies of the 1977 Princeton Recollector, you learn that Edmund DeLong died right before Volumes 9 and 10 were published.
I wonder what we could have learned about the case had he lived longer. Sue, Sep 8, 2017

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE AUTHOR OF THE LINDBERGH CASE 29 pp. pdf
American Crime Writer and Author of the award-winning novel, Lilies of The Field, wrote a scathing attack on the American Press in the aftermath of the Hauptmann Trial. It's no wonder it never got published. Click link above to read his critique of the Trial coverage.
STATEMENT OF THE MAN IDENTIFIED AS MILLS ; From the Notes of William E. Barrett
A crime thriller fantasy of the Lindbergh Kidnapping Case written in 1930s gangster jargon by the author of hundreds of Pulp Fiction stories. Barrett had been a crime reporter in St. Louis and Denver. He was also an aviation expert who flew around the same time Lindbergh flew to Paris and before he entered the contest. Barrett took a very keen interest in the case and the trial. He obviously believed Richard Hauptmann was railroaded.
