Celebrate the recent primary elections and Women’s History Month with Marilyn Lloyd’s papers and correspondence housed in Special Collections. Congresswoman Lloyd became the first woman ever elected to Congress from Tennessee for a full term.
Marilyn Lloyd’s collection documents her 20 years of service as a member of the United States House of Representatives from Tennessee’s third Congressional District from 1974 to 1994. The collection includes congressional records, copies of speeches, campaign flyers, and letters from constituents among other items. For her entire career, Lloyd served on the Committee on Science, Space and Technology, which had jurisdiction over much of the legislation related to the atomic energy facilities at Oak Ridge in her district.
