STILES JUDSON, JR., STRATFORD: Attorney at Law.

The subject of this sketch was born in Stratford, Fairfield county, Conn., February 13, 1862. He received his early education in the public schools of the town and at the Stratford Academy. At the age of twenty one he entered the Law School of Yale University where he was graduated in June, 1885, with the degree of LL.B., and was awarded the prize for the best examination in his studies. He was admitted to the bar of Connecticut the same year, and entered the office of the well-known law firm of Townsend & Watrous in New Haven, where he remained until September, 1886. He then removed to Bridgeport, where he has since continued the practice of his profession, and is a member of the law firm of Canfield & Judson. He is an active practitioner in the courts, and has been identified with some of the most important cases that have arisen in Fairfield county. He is of good presence before a jury, a fluent and earnest pleader, quick to grasp the important points in a case, and has been remarkably successful in his practice.

Mr. Judson has been connected with the Connecticut National Guard for ten years, and is now captain of Company K, Fourth Regiment, located at Stratford. He makes a popular and efficient officer. He was married in 1885 to Miss Minnie L. Miles of Milford, and has since made Stratford his residence, where he has always taken an active part in town affairs, and has acceptably filled various offices in the town. He is at present chairman of the republican town committee and an active party worker. In the presidential campaign of 1888 Mr. Judson went upon the stump and won a reputation as an eloquent and convincing speaker upon public issues. He is a member of St. John's Lodge of Masons in Stratford. At the celebration of the 250th anniversary of the settlement of the town of Stratford he was chosen as the president of the day, and was at the time the youngest male representative of the oldest family in the town. It: Judson was elected to the legislature from Stratford in the fall of 1890, and was at once recognized as one of the leaders on the republican side of the house in the memorable gubernatorial contest in the winter of 1851. He was also appointed to the important position of chairman of the judiciary committee of the house, a position for which his talents peculiarly fitted him. The position he has attained in the professions of law and politics gives promise of a very successful future career.
