The crime writer, Alan Hynd, wrote a series of articles that appeared in the Atlanta Constitution in July 1933.

The articles all appeared on Sundays -- July 9, July 16, and July 23.

On July 8, 1933, there was an introduction to the articles that were about to appear, reading:

Guarding the Second Lindbergh Baby On An Armed, Fortified Millionaire Estate:

Alert detectives, barbed wire fences, chained driveways, watchdogs and a complex network of private phones, all employed in the high resolve to shield this famous infant by the most up-to-date means known to wealth and science, are described by Alan Hynd, outstanding writer who has "covered" the Lindbergh case constantly since its inception.

All the articles have the same title:

"Guarding the Second Lindbergh Baby on an Armed, Fortified Millionaire Estate"
