Fannie Hurst Leaves
$1,000,000 Apiece
to Two Universities

NEW YORK — Fannie Hurst,
the novelist and short-story writer
who died Feb. 23, left $1,000,000
aniece to Brandeis University and
Washington University to establish
professorships of creative litera-
ture.
Miss Hurst directed in her will,
dated Feb. 8, that the bulk of her
$2 000 000 estate be divided equally
between Brandeis, in Waltham,:
Mass., and Washington University,
St. Louis, the university from
which she obtained her BA degree.
The Fannie Hurst Professor-
ship will be restricted to dis-
tinguished professors from col-
leges and universities other than
the university creating the pro-
fessorship so that the students
of such universities will be af-
forded the additional opportunity
of exposure to other great minds.
It is not known the exact amount

Miss Hurst delivered two manu-
script novels to her agent a few
weeks before her death.
Services were held Feb. 29 in a
Madison Ave. funeral home. Dr.
Algernon Black of the Ethical Cul-
ture Society of New York delivered
the eulogy to some 200 friends.
Dr. Black said: "She communi-
cated. That's a great sin today —
she's called sob sister, lowbrow.
She talked to the common people
but she also talked to the common
good in them."
Miss Hurst was cremated and
her ashes buried in St. Louis, her
birthplace.
