An Alden Whitman von der New York Times. „After you left the Agta area, my schedule continued according to plan for some days. On returning to Manila, I began working on wildlife conservation activities -- a meeting of the Philippine Wildlife Conservation Foundation, a check into the present condition of the Tamaraw in Mindoro, and a trip with Jesse Alvarez to Mindanao to talk to a meeting of loggers in regard to protection of the Monkey Eating Eagle. After the meeting, in Davao, we drove several hours northwest into an isolated and heavily-jungled mountainous area where, after antoher hour on foot, we located two eagles near a previously located nest.

One of them was considerate enough to remain perched on a branch for close to an hour while we phootgraphed and observed it. […]“ Alden Whitman papers are held by THE NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY..

To Senator from NJ A. Harry Moore, praising the NJ State Police and especially Superintendent Norman Schwarzkopf for their help in 1932 [when Lindbergh's son was kidnapped]. "I believe it will interest you to know how highly we have come to regard the officers and personnel of the New Jersey State Police since you appointed them to assist us in 1932. During this time I have learned to have the utmost confidence and respect for Col. Schwarzkopf and his organization. I feel that their work has always been carried on with great perseverence [sic] and efficiency; and with absolute honesty.

"Certainly there is nothing more essential to good government than an honest and intelligent police force. I believe that the New Jersey State Police are deserving of the fullest support and cooperation; and that it is essential to the welfare of every community that they receive such support." On May 12, 1932, the lifeless body of Charles and Anne Lindbergh's infant son was found after having been abducted from home 11 days earlier and after a ransom payment had been made. Although the NJ State Police were the first on the scene, the FBI began coordinating the investigation on the following day. By tracing the ransom money, Richard Hauptmann was captured, tried in what was dubbed at the time as the "Trial of the Century," and executed for the murder..
