[juhd-suhn]
Harmon, Judson, 1846-1927, U.S. Attorney General and governor of Ohio, b. Newton, Ohio. He was a lawyer and a judge in Cincinnati for many years and served (1895-97) ably as U.S. Attorney General under President Cleveland. Harmon was elected (1908) governor of Ohio on the Democratic ticket, thus breaking a long Republican rule. He was reelected in 1910, defeating Warren G. Harding. As governor he put through many reforms, including a corrupt-practices act, a workers' compensation act, and Ohio's ratification of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
Judson, Adoniram, 1788-1850, American Baptist missionary, b. Malden, Mass. At Andover Theological Seminary, he became the leader of a missionary movement out of which grew the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions. As a Congregational minister, Judson sailed (1812) for India. After conversion to the Baptist faith, he went (1813) to Myanmar, where he remained for 30 years. In 1845 he visited the United States, and on his return to Moulmein (1846; now Mawlamyine) he completed and published (1849) his Dictionary, English and Burmese. He had also translated the Bible into Burmese. The Judson Memorial Church in New York City is named for him.
