Marian Scott's 1976 Letter to Dorothy McCardle

Sue,

No argument there; Marian Scott was reminiscing on March 1, 1976 about what Alice Morrow had told her shortly after Charlie's body was found in 1932.

What Scott wrote in her letter was: "Miss Morrow invited me in and we both wept. She told me that the only pictures of the baby ever made were snapped by Mrs. Morrow and herself on the baby's birthday. The Lindberghs would never let their baby be photographed and the two doting ladies, grandma and great aunt, had taken them without the Lindberghs being aware of it."

All I am saying is that IF Alice Morrow did say this, then she was mistaken. Charles took several photos of Charlie (2 on Christmas 1930 and a couple with his mother and Charlie).

Also Alice took a home movie of Charlie on August 31, 1931 at North Haven. I have stills of the movie... they are at Yale University.

          • Wayne, I know about the Yale archive, but I also know that those pictures are Lindbergh's personal photos so I won't go down that road. Good luck in your endeavors. I was just wondering what you... more
