AUTHOR TALK:TOM BATOR
Weston Public Library, Thursday, September 29 at 8pm
Join Weston resident and town Trust Commissioner Tom Bator as he discusses his new book, The Boston Trustee, a new financial and legal history volume of interest toanyone seeking to understand trusts and the role of trustees, the evolution of Boston as a financial and regional hub, and the convergence of money and financial control centered in a few powerful members of Boston Brahmin society. The Boston Trustee tells the story of a unique Boston institution – men and women who serve as individual professional trustees and are known universally as “Boston Trustees.” To understand the Boston Trustees is in large part to understand what makes Boston and the Boston Brahmins exceptional.
Tom Bator is a partner in the private trustee office of Nichols & Pratt, LLP and is a member of that Firm’s investment committee and management committee. He is a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC). He was the Secretary for the Massachusetts Uniform Trust Code committee and the Massachusetts Prudent Investor Act committee. He is a past co-chair of the Boston Bar Association's Estate Planning committee. An elected Commissioner of Trust funds for the Town of Weston, he has obtained the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation and is a graduate of the University of Chicago Law School and Harvard University.
Please join us in the Community Room for this event. (added from Eventkeeper)
