    Based on C. Koch's statement, I would guess that he wasn't the executor of Lambe's estate.  And only the stock in one of the Koch family companies was distributed to him to manage for charitable purposes.

    The millions of dollars that have been run through this foundation suggests a benefactor of substantial means who would have carefully considered how his wealth were used and who best to manage it.  My wild-ass guess is that the non-tradeable stock was of little value and only the Koch brothers could purchase it and a price they determine.  A rather nice vehicle to do more than mask their financial support for right-wing nuts.
