Author Wayne S. Cole, who was a professor of history at Iowa State, the University of Maryland and University of Arkansas, writes the crucially important history of an Iowa speech by Charles A. LIndbergh exactly sixty years before 9/11, on September 11, 1941. Lindbergh’s Des Moines, Iowa speech that day as the leading speaker for the America First Committee is still pertinent to our current plight. Lindbergh referred to harm done to the interests of White America by “Jewish groups…(whose) greatest danger to this country lies in their large ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our Government.” Wayne Cole had access to Lindbergh’s private papers, as well as personal interviews with Lindbergh, in the writing of his all-too-short (297 pages) 1974 book: “Charles A. Lindbergh and the Batle Against American Intervention in World War II”, published in the year that Lindbergh died. Lindbergh died on August 26, 1974 and was buried the same day in a pine box at the home he loved on the remote side of the island of Maui, Hawaii.
