1810 - 1880

Chief Justice
Supreme Court of Wisconsin
1874 - 1880
To the memory of
Edward George Ryan,
who, as Chief Justice of Wisconsin,
wrought with master hand in upbuilding
its system of jurisprudence and
added dignity to government by law.
This memorial structure is
dedicated by the state bar association
on behalf of its members and others
at home and abroad, A.D. 1911.
In other places in life,
the light of intelligence, purity of truth,
love of right, firmness of integrity,
singleness of purpose, candor of judgment,
are relatively essential to high beauty of character.
On the bench they are the absolute condition of duty.
The judge who palters with justice,
who is swayed by fear, favor affection or the hope of reward,
by personal influence or public opinion,
prostitutes the attributes of God
and sells the favor of his Maker.
But the light of God's eternal truth and justice
shines on the head of the just judge,
and makes it visibly glorious.
— Ryan, 1873
