About Lucy Upson

Miss Lucy Upson was the first female attorney in Kosciusko County. Born in Warsaw on August 4, 1886, she graduated from Warsaw High School in 1904 and after further education, started as a legal secretary in the law office of Stookey and Anglin. In 1923, after the death of both attorneys in the practice, Lucy developed a plan. With determination she studied law, took her oral examination, and in 1926 at the young age of 30 was admitted to the Indiana Bar Association.

Miss Upson was among the first 100 female attorneys in the state. She practiced law in Kosciusko and surrounding counties, never asking for special treatment, and always received proper respect for her determination and abilities.

Miss Upson served hundreds of clients in this community for 50 years, retiring from practice in 1976. Lucy was active in community affairs and had a large circle of friends. She was an inspiration to all who knew her and is an excellent role model for persons striving for independence and self-sufficiency.
