L. C. Tidball
In 1893, Tidball served as Speaker of the House in Wyoming's state assembly. In that capacity, along with President of the Wyoming Senate F.W. Mondell, he signed a resolution and memorial putting the Wyoming legislature's seal of approval on the idea that the United States should adopt a constitutional amendment requiring that U.S. Senators be elected by popular vote rather than by the various state legislatures.
Tidball is mentioned in "The First Battle: A Story of the Campaign of 1896," a book by William Jennings Bryan in which Bryan reviews his presidential campaign of 1896.
