Thelma Miller donating a portion of her extensive Lindbergh 
collection to the NJ State Police Museum in Trenton, NJ

 Mrs. Miller was fascinated by Charles Lindbergh, and began collecting souvenirs and memorabilia in 1927 with the transatlantic flight of the Spirit of St. Louis. Her father was a Flemington police officer, and was Bruno Hauptmann’s guard for the duration of the famous trial.   He helped augment her collection at that time with actual trial artifacts, including crank letters written to trial principals and even some of the cardboard utensils used by Hauptmann.

Thelma's father was also able to provide her and her brother with trial passes, so Thelma was able to visit the Hauptmann trial several times in February 1935.  Even the local press at the time noted 18-year-old Thelma skipping school to attend the trial, as shown in the cartoon below:
