The Hebrew University Association v. Nye
Professor Yahuda and his wife, the plaintiff, had indicated to their friends their interest in creating a scholarship research center in Israel which would serve as a memorial to them. Yahuda went to Jerusalem and had several talks with the plaintiff. Ethel S. Yahuda announced a gift of her library from herself to the plaintiff at a luncheon in Israel, in her honor. Several notables, the plaintiff, and the president of Israel attended the luncheon. The next day, Yahuda signed a newspaper release that indicated she had given the library to the plaintiff. Later she refused several offers for the library explaining that it did not belong to her, only to the plaintiff. Yahuda began arranging and cataloging the material in the library for shipment to Israel. She wrote the plaintiff that she had decided to ship the library and collection but it was not to be unpacked unless she was present so her husband’s ex libris could be affixed to the books.
