Pen and Ink
Alicia Stonebreaker sketched this beautiful pen and ink painting in Berlin, Vermont in 1973, as noted in the lower left corner of the artwork. The hunched over walker makes tracks in the new fallen snow and the buildings to his left are captured in beautiful perspective by Alicia. She was married to the Judge John Connarn of Northfield, Vermont at this time. The well respected Judge Connarn, Vermont State Attorney General from 1965-1967, loved Alicia dearly. He was a native of Brattleboro and resided nearly all his life in Northfield, Vermont. He graduated from Northfield High School, and he was a Cadet at Norwich University from which he graduated in 1941. After meritorious service in the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean Theater in World War II, in which he was severely wounded in France, he earned a law degree from the University of Maine. In 1956, the citizens of Northfield elected this able attorney to represent their town in the House of Representatives where he faithfully served for four terms. In 1967 the General Assembly elected him to a seat on the Vermont District Court, and he presided with great distinction in both district and superior courtrooms until his retirement from the bench in 1985. He remained loyal to his alma mater, serving as president of the Norwich University Alumni Association and as District Captain of the Norwich University 2000 Fund Drive. He greeted guests at the Margaret Holland Inn in Northfield where he was the owner and innkeeper. It was during the 1970 Parents Weekend at Norwich with Alicia’s son, William, in his freshman year where Alicia and John first met at his Margaret Holland Inn.
