Oklahoma Congressman Frank Lucas chaired the Agriculture Committee for two terms. In the portrait marking his service, he stands on the committee hearing room’s balcony, a frequent setting for chairmen’s portraits. Less common is the bright orange Oklahoma State University tie that alumnus Lucas sports.
