Charlotte B. Pitt, a long-time generous supporter of Albany Law School, was honored recently with a portrait near the main entrance of the law school's 1928 Building.

The portrait hangs near a portrait of her husband, DeForest C. Pitt ’32, a former New York State Supreme Court Judge, and opposite from the central staircase that bears their name.

Calling the Albany Law community her extended family, Pitt gives regularly to the school, including contributing to the Annual Fund and supporting alumni events like the Annual Day at the Races. She has also made a provision for Albany Law School in her will, planning to leave a bequest that will enhance the school’s endowment.

“Albany Law School gave the love of my life the ability to achieve a successful career and life,” Pitt said. “He loved the school.”
