Lanza received a law degree from New York University in 1915 and passed the New York State Bar Examination in 1916.

The collection also contains official documents issued by the government, dated 1917-1918, the first three issues of "The Lakehurst Bomb", a newsletter printed in 1918, and an essay written after 1945 about the effects of centrifugal force on pilots.
