Description

Lucille Speer tells the history of Montana’s constitutional conventions and her role on the Local Government Committee at the Montana Constitutional Convention in 1972. She recalls doing studies for the League of Women Voters in preparation for a constitutional convention, prior to her appointment as delegate at the ’71-‘72 Convention. Speer describes the events that led to the organization of a constitutional convention, and then describes the process by which counties elected their delegates to send to the convention. She notes that at 71 years old, she was the oldest delegate from Missoula County. Speer also mentions the process of electing a Convention President, and the two candidates, Dave Holland of Butte and George [Leo] Graybill from Great Falls.
