LWC ceremony to honor Adair native Walter Baker
By Duane Bonifer
News from Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, KY - The public is invited to attend a special ceremony honoring one of Adair County's most renowned natives at 11:30amCT on Wednesday, May 30, 2012 at the Lindsey Wilson College Katie Murrell Library.
A portrait of the late Judge Walter Baker will be unveiled in the college's Katie Murrell Library, 235 Holloway Drive. Baker, who was born in Adair County and attended the former Lindsey Wilson Training School, was a graduate of Adair County High School's first graduating class before going on to Harvard College.
After graduating from Harvard, magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa and then Harvard Law School, Judge Baker began a distinguished law career in Glasgow, Ky., that also included: service in the Kentucky Air National Guard and U.S. Air Force (1961-81), retiring as lieutenant colonel from the Air National Guard; member of the Kentucky House of Representatives (1968-71) and Kentucky State Senate (1972-81, '89-96); Assistant General Counsel for International Affairs, U.S. Department of Defense (1981-83); and Kentucky Supreme Court Justice (1996). He died in 2010.
Following his death, Baker's widow, Jane, donated a substantial portion of his library to LWC.
