About Lucile Lomen

Helen Lucile Lomen (August 21, 1920 – June 21, 1996) was the first woman to serve as a law clerk for a Supreme Court justice.

Lomen was born in Nome, Alaska in 1920. Her family later moved to Seattle, where she graduated from Queen Anne High School in 1937. She then attended Whitman College, from which she graduated with honors in 1941. Lomen went to law school at the University of Washington.

Upon graduation, she went to Washington, D.C. to clerk for Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas (himself a Whitman alum) for the 1944–1945 term. After her time at the Supreme Court, Lomen turned down a position in the U.S. Department of Justice in favor of her home state of Washington as assistant attorney general, where she served for three years. She went on to a 35-year career in multiple positions for General Electric including counsel for corporate affairs. She retired in 1983 and died at the age of 75 in 1996.
