The Wills of LGBT Icons

Date
Thursday, June 12, 2014
Time
06:00 PM–07:00 PM

What did Gertrude Stein leave to Alice B. Toklas? How did Truman Capote benefit his longtime companion and create his charitable foundation to reward excellence in literary criticism? From the debt-ridden estate of Oscar Wilde to the substantial fortune of Andy Warhol, discover what lessons can be learned from the administration of these and other famous estates.

Join Michael E.S. McCarthy of U.S. Trust for an intriguing look into the wills of these and other LGBT icons. Learn what provisions were made for family and partners and how these individuals handled gifts of their tangible personal property. Throughout the discussion, wills will be compared and contrasted, and questions will be encouraged.
