Did Benny Goodman give his clarinet to Lester Young?

I do not know about Lester Young. However I saw "Benny Goodman's

b-flat clarinet" in the music instrument hall of the Metropolitan

museum in NY City about 10 years ago. One would imagine it's still

there in its glass case, looking really superb just like its owner

used to play.
