Former congressman dies in car crash

Former Calif. Congressman James “Jim” Lloyd ‘58 died on Feb. 2. He was 89.


Lloyd was involved in a solo-car crash on Jan. 22in Pensacola, Fla., following the onset of a massive stroke. Lloyd, a former Navy pilot in World War II and Korea, will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery at some point this summer.


Lloyd was born in the state of Washington and attended high school in Oregon. After graduating from Stanford in 1958, he served in Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis, where he was director of public affairs and Cold War activities at the U.S. Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay. He obtained a master’s in political science from the University of Southern California in 1966 and was elected to the West Covina City Council in 1968.


He served as a city councilman of West Covina, Calif., until 1975 and won election to the U.S. House of Representative immediately afterwards. Lloyd served three terms, from Jan. 1975 to Jan. 1981, as a centrist Democrat, before being defeated by current congressman David Dreier (R-San Dimas).


After his defeat in 1980, Lloyd worked as a consultant in D.C. on behalf of the aerospace industry and was one of a group of former congressmen who visited North Korea in 1992 to report on the country’s nuclear production capabilities.


Lloyd is survived by his son, Brian, and his two grandsons.
