Dates of existence
Marion Musser was born in Iowa and she graduated Vassar College in 1932. In 1940, she married Glen A. Lloyd and they had three children together. Her husband died in 1975, but Marion lived three decades after his death with her remaining children (John died in 1991) and four grandchildren.
As the collection shows with its varied materials, Marion was a wordly individual who actively participated in many different communal groups and social organizations. She was the first woman to head a major arts institution in Chicago when she served as the Chairman of the Ravinia Festival. She also was interested and worked with the Chicago Symphony, The General Service Foundation, and the Board of the University of Chicago. She and her family had three residences found in Libertyville, Chicago, and New Mexico.
