The Inside Story: Harford’s Court Houses, Judges and Lawyers

November 3, 2022 @ 6:30 pm


Each year the Historical Society concludes its Speakers Series with the Archer Lecture, named for one of the society’s prominent founding members. The speakers are generally chosen from local authors who have contributed in a very special way to our understanding of Harford’s history. We are pleased to announce this year’s speaker will be Judge William O. Carr, author of the Biographical Encyclopedia of Harford County, Maryland 1774-1976 (co-author Henry Peden).

Having served on the Circuit Court of Harford County since 1984, Judge Carr has a unique knowledge of the courthouse and the judges and lawyers who have served in Harford County. We invite you to join us as Judge William O. Carr leads a tour of the portrait gallery and the court’s “holding cell”. He will then regale attendees with the history of the courthouse and the stories of the judges and attorneys who made much of this history. The evening will start with a wine and cheese reception followed by a tour and a very special presentation.

Register Now! $10, pre-registration is required. Space is limited so early registration is recommended.
