PAYSON WOLFF

Payson Wolff, a prominent entertainment and real estate attorney, died of cancer Sept. 14 at his Beverly Hills home. He was 74.

Wolff, a partner in the law firm Gang, Tyre, Ramer & Brown, represented such clients as Bob Hope, Capitol Records, Warner Bros. Records and Daily Variety during his 39 years with the firm. Martin Gang, one of the original members of the law firm, incorporated Daily Variety in 1933.

Wolff, who graduated from Harvard in 1942 and from Yale Law School in 1954, clerked for Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren. He joined Gang, Tyre, Ramer & Brown in 1956.

“Payson Wolff was an excellent lawyer and one of nature’s noblemen. He is irreplaceable,” said firm partner Norman Tyre.

Wolff is survived by his wife, two sons, a daughter and eight grandchildren.

Family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to the Payson Wolff Scholarship Fund at El Nido Services, 3679 Motor Ave., Los Angeles, Calif. 90034.
