Marjorie Hayes leaves IWP $1 million bequest

Longtime supporter and friend of IWP Marjorie Hayes (known to her friends as Margie) recently passed away, leaving IWP a bequest of $1 million.

"Margie was almost reckless in her spirit of adventure," remembers IWP founder and president John Lenczowski.

Her adventures began at a young age. Margie arrived at the scene of the Hindenburg disaster an hour after it happened; she was attending school nearby at the time. Later, towards the end of the Second World War, she attended the Sorbonne in Paris.  Read more
