     In the field of law practice Walter P. Judson has made a creditable position. He was born December 30, 1869, in New Haven, where he is now actively and successfully engaged in practice. He comes of English ancestry, the American progenitor of the family, who was of English birth, settling first at Concord, Massachusetts, in 1634, but in 1639 the family removed to Stratford, Connecticut, being among the first settlers of that town. Charles E. Judson, father of Walter P. Judson, was born in South Britain, Connecticut, and afterward became a merchant of New Haven, where he passed away in 1898, at the age of sixty-six years. His wife, Mrs. Martha J. (Parmelee) Judson, who was born in New Haven, departed this life the previous year, when sixty-four years of ago.
     In a family of five children Walter P. Judson was the third, the others being Charles W., a resident of North Branford, Connecticut, Homer L., living at Woodbridge, Connecticut; Jerome T., who is at Pomona, Los Angeles county, California; and Ada B., also in Pomona. His high school course was supplemented by academic study at Yale, from which he was graduated with the class of 1893. His law studies were also there pursued to his gradua-tion as a member of the class of 1896.
     Immediately afterward Mr. Judson began practice in New Haven, where he has since remained, and in the intervening years his practice has steadily grown in volume and importance. He carefully prepares his cases, and his thoroughness and his force in argument are salient features in winning for him many of the favorable verdicts of which the court records bear testimony. He is well known as a member of the New Haven, the New Haven County and the American Bar Associations and he enjoys the high regard of his professional brethren to an unusual degree. He belongs to the Union League Club and to Trinity Methodist Episcopal church.
