The Morton A. Brody Distinguished Judicial Service Award was created in memory of the Honorable Morton A. Brody, a U.S. District Court judge who passed away in March 2000. Judge Brody led an exemplary career as a lawyer, judge, and civic leader. A long-time friend of the College, he taught courses at Colby on the judicial system and was the husband of former Associate Dean of Admissions Judith Brody ’58.
At the request of the Brody family, in keeping with Judge Brody’s distinguished service to both the state and federal judiciary, the College has accepted gifts given in his memory to establish an endowment to support a biennial event on the campus to honor an outstanding United States federal or state judge who embodies the same qualities of integrity, compassion, humanity, and judicial craftsmanship as were exhibited by Judge Brody throughout his lifetime.
