Eugenia Woodward Hitt
At her death, Hitt bequeathed the bulk of her collection, valued at over $50 million, to the Birmingham Museum of Art, thereby leaving one of the largest gifts received by an American museum from a single donor. She donated one item, a bronze wall clock, to the Château de Versailles.
