The President today announced that he will nominate Charles B. Curtis, of Bethesda, Md., and Georgiana Sheldon, of Arlington, Va., to be members of the Federal Power Commission. Curtis would replace William L. Springer, and Sheldon would replace James G. Watt.

Curtis was born April 27, 1940, in Upper Darby, Pa. He received a B.S. from the University of Massachusetts in 1962 and an LL.B. from Boston University Law School in 1965.

From 1965 to 1967, Curtis was a staff attorney, then supervising staff attorney, in the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. From 1967 to 1971, he served on the Securities and Exchange Commission, as special counsel to the Division of Trading and Markets; chief of the Branch of Regulation and Inspections; and attorney-advisor (finance).

Curtis was counsel to the House Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce from 1971 to 1976, with special emphasis on energy and securities regulation. From November 1976 to January 1977, he worked for the Carter-Mondale transition team as liaison to the Federal Energy Administration. Since January he has been with the Washington law firm of Van Ness, Curtis, Feldman & Sutcliffe.

Sheldon was born December 2, 1923, in Lawrenceville, Pa. She received a B.A. from Keuka College in 1945 and an M.S. from Cornell University in 1949.

From 1954 to 1956, Sheldon was registrar and director of admissions at Stetson University College of Law in Florida. From 1956 to 1961, she was assistant to the special assistant of the chairman of the Republican National Committee. In 1961 she was vice president of Sorin-Hall, Inc., a public relations firm, and in 1961 and 1962 she was executive secretary of the Foundation for Specialized Group Housing, an organization primarily for housing for the elderly.

From 1963 to 1969, Sheldon was executive secretary and personal assistant to then-Representative Rogers C. B. Morton. From 1969 to 1975, she was Deputy Director of the Defense Civil Preparedness Agency. In 1975 and 1976, she was Director of the Office of Foreign Disaster Relief and Deputy Coordinator for International Disaster Assistance at AID. Until June 1977 she was Acting Chairman and Vice Chairman of the U.S. Civil Service Commission.
