The Wills of Famous Women and the Lessons They Teach Us

Date
Thursday, October 3, 2013
Time
06:00 PM–07:00 PM

Marilyn Monroe, Princess Diana and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis led very different lives. Yet after their deaths their wills became the subject of scrutiny. Join us as we discuss the charitable giving of these and other famous women. Learn how the language in their wills helped, and sometimes hurt, the pursuit of their philanthropic goals. Michael E.S. McCarthy of U.S. Trust will discuss how gifts were distributed to family and friends, what happened to real estate holdings and what provisions were made for charity. See the wills of these famous women, and gain valuable lessons from the administration of these estates.

This is event is FREE!

For more information, please contact Ashley Mancinelli, 410-547-9000, ext. 387, or, amancinelli@thewalters.org.
