Join local historian Milo Pyne for a talk on his grandmother Mamie Dowd Walker, the first woman judge in North Carolina. In 1934, Walker was appointed the judge of the juvenile court for Durham city and county, where she served until her retirement in 1949. The program she developed for the prevention and treatment of delinquency became a model for many similar programs across the nation.
