MORE ON THE JUDGE JAMES P. GORTER MEDAL

The E-Sylum (8/15/2010)


Book Content

Back in June Russ Sears submitted a short research article about a rare Maryland medal honoring Judge James Polk Gorter. He had information about the creation of the medal, but hadn't seen an example or even an image of one.

With the help of reader Kay O. Freeman, Russ was able to contact the Judge's grandson and learn that he had one of the medals in gold. Now Russ has been able to obtain an image of that medal, pictured below along with the text of the medal's inscription. Thanks! The whereabouts of the bronze medal is still unknown. -Editor
