Lillian Exum Clement (1894–1925),
also known as Lillian Stafford after marrying, was the first woman elected to
the North Carolina General
Assembly and the first woman to serve in any state legislature in
the Southern United States. Lillian Exum Clement, known as "Exum" or
"Ex" was the sixth of seven children born to George Washington
Clement and Sara Elizabeth Burnett. Clement attended high school in Asheville, North Carolina and
then Asheville Business College, after being encouraged to do so by prominent
Asheville-area philanthropist Edith Vanderbilt.
Clement's father was employed as a foreman by Edith's husband, George Vanderbilt.
Clement took a job as an office deputy in the Buncombe County sheriff's"br"department at the age of 14 and studied law with James Jefferson Britt and"br"Robert G. Goldstein in her spare time. In"br"1916, she earned one of the highest scores on the state bar exam among 70"br"students and received an award.[1] She became a criminal lawyer in"br"1917 and was the first female attorney in North Carolina without male partners. She served as chief clerk of the"br"Buncombe County draft board. There"br"is some dispute over Clement's date of birth, which is widely reported as 1894.
According to the North Carolina State Archives, the 1900 U.S. Federal Census
records her birth as taking place in March 1886, while the 1910 census records
her year as 22, which would make her birth year 1888. Zoe Rhine, special
collections librarian at Pack Memorial Library, contends that "Close
research of the federal census records, the Asheville City Directories, the All
Souls' Parish Yearbook and early newspaper articles leads this writer to"br""br""b"Exported By ExportYourStore
