three-names or two?
Thu May 11, 2017 18:31

Ronelle, he was "Richard" to everyone in his social milieu, and he only wanted to be known as "Richard." But if my memory serves, he was "Bruno Richard Hauptmann" on his driver's license, which preceded the time of his arrest. As I pointed out on a separate posting, notorious villains (whether guilty or not) tend to be called by three names. Don't know why that is. Even James Earl Ray used a three-name alias, "Eric Starvo Galt."

I haven't read Zorn's book, so I'll defer to you and the forum on that matter.

    "Anonymous is right in citing these examples." You're kidding? He has cited only "examples" of the AFTERMATH - when he became known as BRUNO by every living human on earth because the Cops and the... more

        Interesting about the three name thing, Bob. Not sure what to make of it. How's about John Wesley Hardin? But seriously: I've read Zorn's book and saw the TV special. The book was good if not... more

          But, the idea that a 15 year old boy who understands no word of the German language "remembers" - by way of a provocative article in a magazine 3 decades later - a "secret plot" spoken supposedly for ... more

            Yes, Ronelle, I too am dubious as to the value of shrinks, faith healers, therapists of all kinds but the physical; and I may as well throw the so-called political pundits who dominate the airwaves... more

                Alas, Ronelle, my post featured some unfortunate word usage, by which I didn't mean to imply that the elderly Condon had any designs whatsoever on toddler CAL, Jr. or that the police seriously... more

              I would have to re-read Schoenfeld all over again and nowadays I don't think I could keep even one eyelid open doing that. Though there would certainly have to be some sort of "expertise" involved in ... more

        He never went by "Bruno Richard Hauptmann" before his arrest, even on his driver's license. A couple of authors have written have claimed this was the name that came back to Finn from the department... more
