Drawing of a fresco representing Justice by Myron A. Waterman (1855-1937) who first gained recognition in the latter part of the 19th century when he established and edited the Fort Scott Lantern. He held a number of other occupations throughout his life including working in the drug store business and serving as a deputy state bank commissioner of Kansas from 1894 to 1901. Waterman was a staunch prohibitionist and a member of the First Congregational Church in Topeka, Kansas. Justice is one of four allegorical murals on the ceiling of the Hall of Representatives in the Kansas Capitol executed by E. S. Miragoli and Company of St. Louis in 1882.
