Solomon Shunned By Hauptmann?

Hauptmann either said that he didn't want a lawyer or he didn't say it.

Do any of the books on the Lindbergh case mention H. Bennett Solomon, Esq.?

I don't have Dekle and Dedman's book, but maybe they mention Solomon?

Steve might know, or check the indexes of the books of the scholars on the Lindbergh case.

Maybe H. Bennett Solomon is a fictitious name in the Hauptmann case?

Who do we turn to in order to validate this information as it relates to H. Bennett Solomon, and whether or not Hauptmann turned this lawyer down?

Shouldn't Solomon's name have at least gotten an honorable mention in the literature?
