Book Alleges Lindbergh Had Other Children

Associated Press Reports A photograph of a letter, dated Aug. 16, 1974, is part of a book published this week in Germany with the cooperation of three siblings who say they are the out-of-wedlock children of the first pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic.

Astrid Bouteuil, Dyrk Hesshaimer and David Hesshaimer worked with biographer Rudolf Schroeck on the 368-page “The Double Life of Charles A. Lindbergh,” published by Heyne Verlag, a division of Random House. The book describes a longtime secret relationship between Lindbergh and their mother, Munich hat maker Brigitte Hesshaimer.
