Wayne,

Do you know for certain that it was Alice who took the home movie of Charlie on August 31, 1931 at North Haven?

Besides Alice, were there other photographers who were taking pictures/film of the baby in July/August 1931?

I know that was a big to-do up there in North Haven, Maine in 1931 before the Lindberghs began their trip to the Orient.

I'm just asking if you happen to know if other people were taking photos/film within the July/August 1931 time frame.

I think there were other parties who were taking pictures of the baby.

I know there is a film of Lindbergh, Anne, and Mrs. and Mrs. Morrow on the dock at North Haven, Maine just prior to their departure to the Orient in 1931.

Do you know who took THAT film?

I think the fact that pictures and film were being taken of the baby in July/August 1931 may have helped to bring on the kidnapping.

Do you know a lot about photography?

What might the stills from Yale reveal?

Thanks.

Sue

        • 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
