Download PDF for this date

Former Supreme Court Judge Irving I. Goldsmith of Saratoga Springs has been named one of the three appointees to the new state Parole Commission by Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt. In making the nomination Governor Roosevelt said of Mr. Goldsmith that “his interest in penology and social work and his experience on the bench give him a breath of view and depth of knowledge few others possess.”

Judge Goldsmith was named to the Supreme Court bench in 1927. In 1924 he represented New York State before the United States Supreme Court in a test case to determine the right of a state to prohibit night employment of women. He was once a member of the state Child Welfare Commission.
