Youngest Women Admitted to the Supreme Court Bar


In 1918, Pauline M. Floyd earned her law degree at the Washington College of Law, which is now part of American University. Four years later, local newspapers declared her to be, at age 24, the youngest woman admitted to the Supreme Court Bar. She held that record until 1936 when Lucy Connell Moore of Marianna, Florida, was admitted at age 22.
