His widow became entangled in a battle with Donald Trump during the 1980s. Trump wanted to sell the apartment she rented under New York City's Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption Program.

(Suzanne Kaaren) Mrs Blackmer did not receive any money as a result of the legal battle with Trump. Trump was enjoined from all attempts to evict her from the 100 Central Park South Apartment where she remained until her death in August of 2004. The Blackmers rented the apartment in 1948 and maintained a residence throughout their lives.
