Russell v. Allen, 107 U.S. 163 (1883)

Russell v. Allen

Decided March 5, 1883

107 U.S. 163


William Russell, of St. Louis, "for the purpose of founding an institution for the education of youth in St. Louis County, Missouri," granted lands and personal property in Arkansas to John S. Homer and his successors, in trust "for the use and benefit of the Russell Institute of St. Louis, Missouri," with directions to the grantee to sell them, and to account for and pay over the proceeds "to Thomas Allen president of the Board of Trustees of the said Russell Institute at St. Louis, Missouri," whose receipt should he a full discharge to the grantee. Held that this was a charitable gift, valid against the donor's heirs and next of kin, although the institution was neither established nor incorporated in the lifetime of the donor or of Allen.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
