On This Date in Minnesota History: December 28

December 28, 1916 – The will of the late J. Pierpont Morgan, together with a statement of the personal property in his estate, was filed late today in the office of Minnesota’s Attorney General Smith, to supply information on which to compute the state’s inheritance tax. The personal property is valued at $52,500,866.44, according to the appraisal report and Minnesota items total $38,570. No valuations on real estate holdings are given.
