The Richard Floyd Papers consist of 31 cubic feet of textual records and audio visual materials and cover the years 1979 to 2000.
Richard Floyd, a Democrat, served California as a State Assembly Member from 1980 through 1992, and again from 1996 through 2000. Beginning in 1980, Floyd represented the 53rd Assembly District, sprawling over southern Los Angeles skipping around the city of Torrence and encompassing the cities of Carson, Hawthorne, Gardena, Lawndale and small portions of the cities of Los Angeles and Redondo Beach. He maintained his seat until 1992 when the reapportioning of district lines moved Floyd to the 55th district where his reelection efforts failed. After a four year hiatus, Floyd found himself representing the 55th Assembly District, which sits north of the Los Angeles harbor area and includes the city of Carson, parts of Compton, Los Angeles and Long Beach. The district also contained the communities of Harbor City, West Carson, Wilmington, and part of West Compton. Floyd represented the district until 2000 when he reached his term limit.
