HARKNESS WILL BEQUEATHS INDEFINITE SUM TO HARVARD

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard University will share in the estate of Edward Harkness, it was revealed yesterday when the will was filed for probate in New York.

His widow, Mrs. Mary Harkness, was bequeathed the bulk of the estate of an unrevealed value. Harkness gave away more than $100,000,000 during his lifetime, of which more than $13,000,000 went to Harvard for the construction of the Houses.

Harvard will receive one-fortieth of the residue of the estate after the death of Mrs. Harkness. Yale, Columbia, and other educational institutions will also benefit by the will.
