President Bush's mother, Dorothy, bequeathed the bulk of her estate to her five children, but she also left $2,000 to the family's former cook and nearly $50,000 to various charities and institutions. Mrs. Bush died Nov. 19 at her home in Greenwich, Conn., a day after suffering a stroke. She was 91.

Members of the Electoral College, which includes George Bush's son Neil and brother Prescott, voted in state capitals across the country today to formally elect Bush as President, fulfilling an antiquated but surviving constitutional ritual. "It was a nice honor, to get to cast a vote for my dad," Neil Bush, a Denver oilman, said before performing his duty in Colorado as one of the nation's 538 electors. "It'll be nice to be a small footnote in history."
