The Legacy of Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson


As you may or may not know, a committee has been working on a way to adequately preserve the legacy of our Chief Justice.

After 2 years, the work has been completed.

The Reading Room of the Wis Historical Society has been dedicated to her with a portrait of her on display.

A website honoring her life has been developed,

A traveling exhibit is now on display in Wausau after a month in Madison. In September it moves to UWM and City Hall in Milwaukee and then onto other cities throughout Wisconsin.

A prize in her name has been established to honor 4 graduating law students who will dedicate their careers to working for equal protection of the laws and social justice.

On July 20, 2022 at 530 a celebration of her legacy will take place at the garden of the Marathon County Historical Society at 530.
