Lorna E. Lockwood Politician

Lorna Elizabeth Lockwood (1903 – September 23, 1977) was a Justice of the Arizona Supreme Court. She was the first female Chief Justice of a state supreme court in the United States. In the 1960s she was almost nominated by President Lyndon Johnson to be the first female justice on the United States Supreme Court. Instead, Johnson appointed Thurgood Marshall, the first African American to serve on the high court. Lockwood died at the age of 74 from complication with pneumonia. It wouldn't be until 1981 that a woman would serve on the nation's highest court: Sandra Day O'Connor, appointed by President Ronald Reagan.
