Elena Kagan's estimated net worth grew 74 percent during her year as solicitor general, records show, an increase that a White House official attributes largely to the distribution of her mother's estate. The rebound of the stock market also helped the U.S. Supreme Court nominee, as did the sale of her Cambridge, Mass., home. Kagan took a hefty pay cut when she became solicitor general last year. Her annual salary as solicitor general is $165,300. As dean of Harvard Law School, she made $437,299.
