The Art of Giving: Wills of Famous Women2:00 pmThe Art of Giving: Wills of Famous Women
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Doris Duke were extremely private women in life. Yet after their deaths, their Wills became public documents for the world to view and scrutinize. How did this happen? Was it necessary? Michael McCarthy, a trusts and estates attorney who participated in drafting versions of these and many other Wills during his private practice, will lead us in a discussion of these issues. With a copy of each of these Wills in hand, we will perform an anatomy of a Will. How did these famous women handle gifts of their tangible personal property? What provisions were made for cash bequests to family members, friends and employees? Outright or in trust? How did they devise the substantial real estate holdings of homes and farms? What provisions were made for charity? What are the issues involved in the creation of a house museum? Whom did they choose to handle the responsibilities of executor and trustee? What are the lessons that can be learned by the eventual administration of these estates? Throughout the discussion, the Wills will be compared and contrasted, and questions will be encouraged.
