Where did it disappear from sight? And why am I even having to ask that question?

 

I don't have that info. It appears to be from an eye witness quoted in a contemporary Time article (behind a paywall).

I've found very little on his older brother Arthur Hurd but he does show up in the 1940 census with a family and 2 servants in NYC.

There was no mention of a brother in that engagement announcement.

I'm not convinced that it was an eye-witness account.

That's certainly an interesting observation!

Here's info re: Whitfield that I haven't yet come across elsewhere, that is, info from his brother that he'd left his home after a quarrel with his wife, but unfortunate for me, since I don't have a subscription to the NYT, I can only read what's available at this link: https://www.nytimes.com/1938/04/21/archives/whitfield-dispute-with-wife-is-bared-left-home-thursday-night-and.html

^ That article reports that he left the airport on a Friday, but April 17 wasn't a Friday, it was a Sunday...

One other comment, to characterize the search as "hunted by the police in eight states" comes across as though he's some sort of a fugitive. :td:

^  I actually joined the NYT and pulled a lot of these old articles.  I don't know whether or not they can still be opened but the one you're referring to is back in the old thread.   LOL  Now there's a challenge and if one should go back and find it, NYT has probably timed it out and it won't open anyway !

Well, (I don't know why this has just now occurred to me, but...) next time I'm at my public library, I'll go online and access the newspaperarchive site. :tsu:
