Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection documents the civic activities of Sacramento City Councilwoman Lauren Hammond, with a small amount of personal items and awards from her office. Material dates from 1973 to 2010, with the bulk from 1993 to 2010. Originally, Hammond’s files were loosely arranged in alphabetical order. For ease of use, they have been organized into four series based on the organizations, boards, and committees she was involved in; her projects; her personal papers and awards; and audiovisual material.
Lauren R. Hammond was the first African American woman to be elected to Sacramento City Council. She was born in 1955 and is a graduate of C. K. McClatchy High School, Sacramento City College, and California State University, Sacramento. Hammond was elected to Sacramento City Council, District 5, on March 4, 1997, and served until November 2010.
