Sept. 23, 1968: Santa Fe poet Witter Bynner who died June 1 left the bulk of his estate to the Academy of American Poets and the Poetry Society of America in his will submitted to Dist. Judge George Reese for approval last week in First District Court.

Bynner’s last will and testament was filed in District Court rather than probate court due to the complexity of the document according to Henry J. Hughes, attorney for the estate.

The will named Paul Horgan of Roswell and Dorothy Chauvenet, executive secretary to Bynner for 22 years, as literary executors of the estate.

Sept. 23, 1993: Santa Fe police were justified in the fatal shooting of Francisco “Pancho” Ortega during a standoff on Hickox Street, a grand jury has determined.
