Can You Find Judge Biggs?

No photo of former Judge Arthur Frasier Biggs has been located. Biggs came to Ligonier after 1900 and worked as legal counsel for Straus Bros. He owned and managed the Ligonier professional baseball team until he was elected as our judge. He served from 1920 to 1931. Please check old family photos that may contain Straus Bros. employees, early Ligonier Baseball teams, or even old wedding photos from the era, as judges could perform weddings. Judge Laur wants to find a photo of former Judge Biggs to complete the History of the Former Circuit Court Judges. Please contact the Court Staff at 260-636-2128 between 8:00am and 4:00pm.
