CLE "WCCF Winter Webinar" (1s)

The Washington County Community Foundation, in partnership with the Washington County Bar Association, is excited to present an online Winter Webinar course on estate planning with Pulitzer Prize winning author Bill Dedman.

Date: December 16, 2020

Time: 12:00 P.M. to 1:30 P.M.

Empty Mansions Paperback Cover

Join bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Bill Dedman for an entertaining tour of the life of the reclusive heiress Huguette Clark and her eccentric family. In Empty Mansions, Bill Dedman unravels a story of American aspiration, excess, and generosity. Meet W.A. Clark, the second wealthiest American of his time, a copper king, founder of Las Vegas, and controversial U.S. senator. His shy second wife, Anna, 39 years his junior. And their daughter Huguette, an artist and collector, who held a ticket for the Titanic and was still living in New York City on 9/11. Huguette's life story is extreme, but it holds lessons for us all. If she had been better advised, she would not have lost $40 million of her fortune to distant relatives, her estate would not have wasted $25 million on legal fees, and her charitable wishes would have been more successfully fulfilled.
