Famous Last Will and Testament Dancer Isadora Duncan

About the last will and testament of famous American dancer Isadora Duncan.


ISADORA DUNCAN, U.S. dancer, died 1927

Last Will: "Written in clear conscience," a hasty scribble on four pages of pocket-sized notebook paper deeded all property to her husband, Bolshevik poet Serge Esenin, in 1922. In event of his death--which occurred when he committed suicide in 1925--the will made Isadora's brother Augustin sole legatee. Destitute when she composed the will, Isadora finally left an estate of sufficient size for her other siblings to claim it: two houses in France and royalties from her best-selling book My Life. Hers was the first will of a Soviet citizen to be probated in the U.S.
