PAIGE, Alonzo Christopher, jurist, born in Schaghticoke, Rensselaer County, New York, 31 July, 1797; died in Schenectady, New York, 31 March, 1868. He was graduated at Williams in 1812, began the study of theology, but soon removed to Schenectady to read law, and after admission to the bar in 1819 practised in that town. He was sent to the legislature in 1826, and served for four years. He was reporter of the court of chancery from 1828 till 1846, when the court was abolished. In 1837-'42 he was a member of the state senate. On the introduction of the elective judiciary system in 1847 he was chosen a judge of the supreme court, and served for four years. He was again elected on the occurrence of a vacancy in 1855, and held the office for two more years. In 1867 he was a member of the State constitutional convention, and advocated a reform in the election laws. Judge Paige received the degree of LL. D. from Williams in 1860. His judicial deliverances are esteemed as clear and learned expositions of the law. He compiled eleven volumes of " Reports of Cases in the Court of Chancery" (New York, 830-48), four of which he revised and annotated in 1856-'7.
