This chapter discusses Judge Sharp's move into an apartment—almost fourteen years after she took rooms at the Hotel Sir Walter when she came to Raleigh as a new member of the supreme court. The apartment was in a townhouse on a busy boulevard, a short drive to the Justice Building and not far from the Cameron Village shopping center with its stores and cafeteria. Justice Sharp had resisted the move as long as she could, but the hotel had deteriorated along with the downtown, and she and State Treasurer Edwin Gill were almost the last of the old residents. Gill had lived in the hotel for forty-six years, ever since he came to Raleigh as a member of the 1929 General Assembly, and could not be persuaded to leave. For Judge Sharp, however, it was time. Still, she was reluctant to give up what had been a convenient and happy arrangement.

Keywords:   Judge Sharp, apartment, Hotel Sir Walter, supreme court, State Treasurer, Edwin Gill, 1929 General Assembly, happy arrangement
