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.
