Here’s a short article from the September 17 1927 edition of the Toronto Daily Star about a widow who was left out of her late husband’s will and was suing:
A search revealed two related articles from the New York Times in July 1927:
- One in which Ms. Sears, the nurse, intended to reject the $1,000,000 fortune left her. This article reported that the late Mr. Aldrich was separated from his widow.
- An article from the next day’s paper in which Ms. Sears decided to accept the money after all, possibly planning on splitting it with his mother. She had apparently met the late Mr. Aldrich eight months prior to his death.
I also found a photo of Ms. Aldrich from 1923.
