Contest over children's illustrator's will

Posted on April 6th, 2010 No Comments

Tasha Tudor, the famous illustrator for loved children’s books such as The Wind in the Willows, died on June 18, 2009 at the age of 92. Eccentric to the end, she believed herself to be the reincarnation of a sea captain’s wife and maintained that belief in her daily life, raising her children without running water or electricity.

Her estate was believed to be worth at least $2 million. She left the majority of it to one of her four children, Seth. Her will specified that she did not leave much to her other children because they were estranged. Another of her children, Thomas Tudor, is leading an attack on the will, claiming that Seth exerted influence on their mother to coerce her into leaving her estate to him. Tasha Tudor’s other children have almost made claims that Seth is failing to properly maintain her estate, as he is allowing a public memorial service despite the will calling for no funeral or public viewing.
