The President today announced that he will nominate M. Athalie Range, of Miami, Fla., to be a member of the Board of Directors of the National Railroad Passenger Corporation for a term expiring July 18, 1981. Range was nominated for this position last session, but was not confirmed before the Senate adjourned.

She was born November 7, 1918, in Key West, Fla. She attended Booker T. Washington High School in Miami.

Range became involved in public service as president of the Liberty City PTA, where she led a building drive for schools in black areas. She served as a local and county PTA president for 16 years.

In 1965 Range was elected to the Miami City Commission. She was the first black and the second woman elected to that commission. She introduced ordinances including more stringent handgun controls and updating housing and fire codes.

In 1971 Range was appointed secretary of the Florida Department of Community Affairs. She resigned in 1973 to return to private business as owner and funeral director of the Range Funeral Home in Miami.

Range is a member of the board of directors of the Florida Legal Aid Commission and a member of the Southern Growth Conference Committee Policy Board. She is president of the Martin Luther King Boulevard Development Corp. and the Sixty-second Street Development Corp.
