Harper Lee’s Will, Unsealed, Only Adds More Mystery to Her Life
Nelle Harper Lee is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” which was published in 1960 and has since sold over 40 million copies worldwide. In 2011, Ms. Lee created the Mockingbird Trust, in an effort to keep her affairs out of the public eye and to privately convey her assets, including the copyright of her best-selling book. She passed away in 2016 and her pour over will was filed with the Probate Court by her long time attorney and executor. The court recently made the document accessible to the public; however, Ms. Lee’s privacy wishes were sustained, as all pertinent information regarding her assets was only included in the Mockingbird Trust.
