Christie's: The John W. Kluge Morven Collection, 2005. Catalogue for the sale of the John W. Kluge Morven Collection held by Christie's Auctioneers in New York on the 16th of December 2005. John Kluge bought the property in 1988 from the Anne M. Stone 1983 Trust. Whitney Stone together with his wife Anne had taken over the property in 1941 from Charles and Mary Stone. Mary had restored the gardens in consultation with Annette Flanders. Whitney concentrated on stud operations and together with his wife Anne founded the United States Equestrian Team. Charles A. Stone was a founder of Stone & Webster. In 2001 Kluge donated the Morven Estate, part of his 7,379 acres in Albemarle County, to the University of Virginia. The 749 acre core property of Morven will be held by the UVA Foundation in perpetuity and used to support the University of Virginia Educational Programs.
