HARTFORD, Conn (Jul. 8)
Attorney Abraham S. Bordon of this city has been appointed by Governor Gross as associate judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Hartford County to succeed Judge Arthur E. Howard, Jr. This marks the first appointment of a Jew to one of the higher Connecticut courts for some years, although of late a number of lesser posts have been conferred upon Jewish citizens.
Judge Bordon has for many years been active in the Jewish communal life of Hartford, being especially interested in the Y. M. H. A. movement. He is the third Jew to serve in one of the Connecticut upper courts. Coming to Hartford from Russia at the age of 6, he received his public school and high school education in this city and was graduated from the Cornell Law School in 1914. He served two terms as a member of the Hartford Board of Aldermen, during the latter of which he was president of the board.
