But Wallace’s wife, to whom he had been married for the last 25 years of his life, died earlier this month before his will was submitted in court. That means the majority of his estate will now be divvied up in trusts between their four adult children, including Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, and their children. All of Wallace’s “notes, scripts, files, journals, logs, manuscripts, video tapes, movies, photographs, honours, diplomas, awards and all intellectual property rights relating to my professional career” were left to his alma mater, the University of Michigan.
