Minner takes oath of office
When Ruth Ann Minner took the oath of office as Delaware's 72nd governor on Jan. 3, she swore her allegiance to the state on a Bible that she was given when she was 14. Her daughters-in-law, Margaret, Phillis and Cindy Ingram, held the book for her.
Minner also used the same Bible when she became lieutenant governor in 1993 and 1997. On those occasions, her sons, Frank, Gary and Wayne Ingram, held the Bible for their mother.
The official State Bible of Delaware was a part of the ceremony as well. Delaware's State Bible dates back to the mid 1800s and has been used at every gubernatorial inauguration since.
