Gone With The Wind Estate's Bequest to Church

The Archdiocese of Atlanta has received a substantial gift from the estate of Margaret Mitchell's nephew, Joseph, including a 50 percent share of the trademark and literary rights to "Gone With the Wind."

The estate of Joseph Mitchell included a multimillion-dollar bequest to the archdiocese and the donation of his home in Atlanta.
