Michael, I couldn't begin to conjecture as to why Robert Bryan didn't get back to you, as their may be a multitude of potential reasons. I can tell you though that at the present moment, I'm very unimpressed with Gus Lesnevich's abilities as a QDE, since first reading about his conclusion that Hauptmann did not author the ransom notes. Am I mistaken, or is this the real issue here?

    Years ago, too many years ago, I had a cordial conversation over the telephone with Gus R. Lesnevich. We talked shop a little and during the conversation I asked him if I might be able to have copies ... more

        Gus Lesnevich has excellent credentials. He is a competent and reliable document examiner. There is no reason for us to think otherwise. I trust him. Because I trust Gus is why I called him about the ... more

          I'm sure Gus Lesnevich is a very competent and reliable document examiner, Michael. From your conversation with him, do you know if he was aware of the origin of the standards of comparison and the... more

            I didn't want to din Gus with questions about the standards of comparison. It didn't seem appropriate to start acting like an inquisitor during our conversation. Whatever the standards of comparison... more

              In the absence of anything further, I'm left wondering a couple of things here. Firstly, how Kennedy could have claimed what he did in his book, ie. Gus Lesnevich determining that Hauptmann did not... more

                I do not know how Kennedy obtained Gus' opinion. I do know that Gus had been examining questioned documents for years for the government and in 1981 he went into private practice. Kennedy's book came ... more

                  I understand the logic here Michael, but I also have to believe that unless he lived in a cave, Gus Lesnevich would have understood categorically that Hauptmann was the writer of the Lindbergh... more

                    We only have Gus Lesnevich's professional opinion in the back of Kennedy's book. His detailed examination "findings" were not explained. Robert Bryan has the complete written report and the standards ... more

                      It's still an unusual situation the way I see it Michael, because I can't imagine any QDE who hasn't been living under a rock to not understand that it was Hauptmann who wrote each and every ransom... more

                  I would expect two experts would be considered "equals." However, if one examined "less" material then I think that would start to upset that balance and question the equality between the two. So who ... more

              Since you asked Script - here are my thoughts: 1. What makes someone a QDE? If there is a standard and if one meets that standard how can they be either "good" or "bad?" Since they employ the same... more

      I met Robert many years ago it seemed he was backing off the case after anna Hauptman died

        It was a wise thing for him to do. It must have been exhausting trying to turn water into wine for 15 years.
