I just finished reading all the insurance policies in the BFH, the collection of George Waters papers which spent a few months in the San Mateo Sheriffs office and which they returned to us recently. Some of the notes are actually in Greek, so I was able to decipher some new information and to put together some ideas about the papers. All the policies are accident insurance policies, many of them flight or travel insurance, which suggests several things: GW probably wished to provide for GB in case of his death (never dreaming that GB would die first, which doesnt lend much credibility to GBs psychic abilities). It also suggests that GW was taking trips somewhere, since as far as I know, flight insurance is usually available only in airports. This would have been truly royal support, adding up to at least a million dollars (not counting the Lloyd's of London policy), maybe more. Every policy was made out with GB as the irrevocable benefactor (meaning that the benefactor could not be changed during his lifetime), and each contained documents to that effect, plus correspondence and notarized statements sent by certified mail. There was no signature, social security number, birth date or any other clue about Brody, who was identified only as friend. There was a small memo book with a 1969 calendar on the back, very worn and taped up, which had some notes of interest, along with some rather funny shopping lists (suspenders, belt 36 black, moth cake for hat box, get Grecian Formula 16 for G). In addition to reminder notes, there were vocabulary lists, music and film recommendations, and one particularly affectonate draft for a letter accompanying the Lloyds policy for GBs birthday. There were many questions regarding the insurance policies, almost certainly dictated by GB, who was especially interested in knowing whether an executor or beneficiary could be held responsible for the insureds debts and whether he would have to pay for a burial. Questions were referred to one BMW, who seems to have been a lawyer, and to Miss Hughes, Bowerth(?), 155 Sansome Street, 94109, who seems to have been an insurance company employee. A note dated 5/20/71 says In 2-3 mos contact BMW to have a will made out to ACE in amt of one dollar. Another note dated 9/1/71 says Given O.K. to take Ms picture on vacation. Yet another one says tentative plan c L/L 1970, 1971 1.75 per an--1972 ^ (increase) to 17.50. I believe this note is related to the note Doogie found with the date of Jan. 16, 1973 on it and that L/L refers to a huge Lloyds policy which has been mentioned elsewhere. I found references to passport off., Executor, Call Apha re Isr and Italian consul, but only as items on lists. I believe the scrupulous accounts (including receipts for every child support payment) were meant to allay Brodys fears that he might be held accountable for some debt. GW did have several outstanding loans, though he seemed to be earning quite a lot of money. His last child support payment was made Dec. 26, 1972, to Anna Christian Eifee Waters. On Dec. 25, 1981, George apparently paid all his bills from his Barclays Bank Account, leaving a balance of $926.61 (Brody died Dec. 24, 1981.) The most interesting thing in the memo book was the following (probably written in 1970 or 1971): FINAL/SOLUTION Lv. G enough food to withstand & combat any poss. onslaught Paraphenalia c itemized receipts in container(s) TK pict/Margaret. Lastly, there are bank records from August, 1969 to Aug. 4, 1976, and then resuming in October, 1977 and continuing through December of 1981. This seems to be amazingly complete except for one period.
