Frank W. Lloyd III has had a distinguished career in communications law. He was the General Counsel of the National Public Affairs Center for Television (NPACT) from 1971 to 1973 after its merger with the Greater Washington Educational Television Association (GWETA). He then became president of the Citizens Communication Center, a public interest law firm focusing on broadcasting. From 1977 to 1981, Lloyd held a variety of consulting and administrative jobs during the Carter administration including a six-month consultancy on public television in the White House, and was the administrative assistant to Charles D. Ferris, Chair of the Federal Communications Commission. Finally, he prepared the position of the Office of Telecommunications Policy for the March 1977 hearings before the House Communications Subcommittee and authored the Public Telecommunications Financing Act of 1978. The collection documents Lloyd's involvement with first the National Public Affairs Center for Television (NPACT) and then the Greater Washington Educational Telecommunications Association after the two organizations merged in November 1972.
