$200,000 GIFT TO HARVARD OFFERED BY MRS. LOVELAND
A gift of $200,000 to Harvard College was recently announced in Surrogate's Court, Newark, New Jersey. The donation arose from a case in which Harvard contested the terms of a bequest.
The case was decided against Harvard, which claimed that undue influence was exerted to cause Mrs. Amy E. Kirkpatrick to cancel a will bequeathing more than $1,000,000 to Harvard and to designate Ruth Love-land, her sister, as residuary legatee. After winning the case, Mrs. Love-land agreed to give $200,000 to Harvard.
