Murder Hinted In Death Of Legion Official
Long Branch police and the county prosecutor's office are investigating the death of Harold H. Adamson, 57-year-old legionnaire and anti-communist leader, who was found dead in his second story Elkwood hotel room at Long Branch Monday morning. Long Branch Police Thomas J. Marks and John M. Pillsbury, assistant county prosecutor, have both stated that the possibility of murder cannot be ruled out. He was born in Long Branch, son of the late Robert and Ida Hennessey Adamson, Jr. He is survived by an uncle, Frank Hennessey of Toms River and a cousin, John Flanagan, a Jersey City attorney, who appeared in Long Branch city hall Monday night. Adamson, a veteran of World War I, had served in the navy as a petty officer. He graduated from Freehold Military academy. His family, one of the oldest in the county, owned several large stores and other real estate at Long Branch. Adamson was commander of Shrewsbury Post, American Legion of Red Bank, in 1946-47, a past commander of the Long Branch VFW post, whose post home he was active in securing, and a member of Monmouth Voiture, 40 and 8. He was an exempt fireman of the Long Branch department and a former captain of the Phil Daly hose company.
