Gellatly v. Wetmore
The appeals court affirmed the decision of the district court, granting the defendant, Smithsonian Institution and its secretary Alexander Wetmore, the Gellatly collection donated by the late John Gellatly. The appellant is the widow of John Gellatly, who filed action against the Smithsonian because her late husband failed to inform her of his intended will.
