The Seventy-second United States Congress was a meeting of the legislative branch of the United States federal government, consisting of the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. It met in Washington, D.C.marker from March 4, 1931 to March 4, 1933, during the last two years of Herbert C. Hoover's presidency. The apportionment of seats in this House of Representatives was based on the Fourteenth Census of the United States in 1920. The Senate had a Republican majority, and the House had a Democratic majority.

Major events

She won re-election to a full term in 1932 and served in the Senate until January 1945.
