Verne Jobst continues underneath:
“The original printing of “The Last Hero” was reviewed by Charles Lindbergh. He made notes of errors that were in the original. The papers of corrections were given to Yale University after C.A.L.’s passing. Mr. Ross was afforded the opportunity to go through General Lindbergh’s papers and as Mrs Lindbergh said, “He made most all of the corrections” in the revised edition that came out in 1976. Obviously, this would be one of the most authentic books written by someone other than C.A.L. himself. Verne Jobst 4-24-81”
