Show Summary Details


On August 21, 1934, the final will and testament of Doris Ulmann was uttered to her lawyer, Charles Furnald Smith. This document generously endowed the John C. Campbell Folk School, provided a substantial gift to Berea College for a photography exhibition hall, bestowed an annual stipend on Niles, left the prints and photographic plates in the care of Niles, and dispersed smaller gifts to family members and servants. The document completely changed the provisions of Ulmann's will, in which she left most of her belongings to her family. The new document was changed by the Necarsulmers (Edna, Henry, and Edith). Niles wrote a letter that would be delivered to Rena Lipetz. It contained a strongly disparaging statement about Jews, but it must be understood within the specific context of his conflict with Henry and Edna Necarsulmer.
