The Gerry Society, which policed child performers, induced the over-worked 15-year-old stage star to change her name yet again in 1912 to protect her identity. The name "Mary Miles Minter" came from assorted family names on her mother's side.


After Mary's death, a second will named Margaret Kozma, a neighbor, as sole beneficiary of Mary's entire estate. Beneficiaries from the first will challenged this second will which was drawn up only two months before Mary's death when Mary was very vulnerable and quite ill. Ms. Kozma ended up claiming she was Minter's illegitimate daughter born in Paris in 1929, which is where Mary was residing at the time. In the early 1990s, the courts invalidated this second will and rejected Ms. Kozma's claim.
