The first woman judge in the state of North Carolina and the first woman in the United States to be elected Chief Justice of a state Supreme Court, Susie Marshall Sharp (1907-1996) broke new ground for women in the legal profession. When she retired in 1979, she left a legacy burnished by her tireless pursuit of lucidity in the law, honesty in judges, and humane conditions in prisons.
