Goddard Leaves $20 Million to NYU: The late actress Paulette Goddard left more than $20 million to New York University, it was announced Thursday. University President John Brademas said Goddard’s “extraordinary” bequest would benefit the university programs in European studies, public service and the arts. The gift would go toward scholarships, junior faculty development and seven endowed professorships in areas of special interest to Goddard and her late husband, novelist Erich Maria Remarque. Goddard died April 23 at 78 in Switzerland.
