Monterey Peninsula Herald, CA May 19, 1952 p2
Mrs. Wilma Aldrich, well known patron of the arts and a Peninsula resident for over 30 years, was found dead in her home at 1240 Munras avenue last evening. Discovery was made by a neighbor, Frank Steiner. Mrs. Aldrich had recently been hospitalized following a slight stroke. She was born 72 years ago in the German Tyrol of an ancient titled Hungarian family, with the rank of countess. A person of simple, democratic tastes, she felt this title incompatible with life in the United States. Before coming to this country much of her life was spent in Vienna and in Paris. Both she and her husband, the late Charles D. Aldrich, a noted author in the field of psychology, were keenly interested in helping struggling artists. One of their protégées, William Johnston, is now dean of the Royal Academy of Art in London. For the first 15 years after coming to the Peninsula, the Aldrich home was in Carmel. Since 1936 Mrs. Aldrich had lived in Monterey. For a time she owned property at Palo Colorado but later gave this land to less fortunate friends. Mrs. Aldrich leaves two aunts and a nephew living in Germany and a sister-in-law who makes her home in Chicago. Funeral services are pending at the Mission Mortuary and will be announced later.
