I did some research. The key person involved in the Trusts was D.
Rajagopal. He was the President (and I believe in total control of) the
Krishnamurti Writings Inc., K&R Foundation, and AB Trust -- all the three
are charitable tax exempt trusts.
Rajagopal was one of the "finds" of CWL (from India) who was said to
be St. Bernard of Clairvaux and had a still more wonderful future -- he was
to be a Buddha probably succeeding Krishnamurti on Mercury. Soon after CWL
found him he was put on Probation according to CWL. Also he was announced as
one of the 12 Apostles for the Coming World Teacher.
Rajagopal was sent to Cambridge for education (TS or Order of the
Star of East paid his expenses) and was admitted to the Bar. Later he went
to Ojai to help Krishnaji in administrative matters and was his business
manager. I do not think Krishnaji ever had a business partner, to the best
of my knowledge.
