Retired justice honored with portrait dedication at courthouse

NORWICH – The walls of the Historic Chenango County Courthouse welcomed the company of the latest addition: a portrait of retired Supreme Court Justice Irad S. Ingraham.

The 30- by 40-inch oil painting is one of several depicting a local legacy of judges that hangs in the courtroom paying homage to their respective civic service leading back well into the 19th Century.

“This truly represents the finest honor you could bestow upon me,” said Ingraham in his opening remarks.

Chenango County Bar Association President Claudette Newman hosted a ceremony on Sept. 8 that honored Ingraham and dedicated the portrait. The event was presided over by Supreme Court Justice Kevin M. Dowd and Elizabeth Garry, and County Court Judge W. Howard Sullivan.
