North Carolina Delegates to the U.S. Congress

83rd U.S. Congress (1953-1955)

The 83rd U.S. Congress met in two sessions: 1) January 3, 1953 to August 3, 1953; and 2) January 6, 1954 to December 2, 1954.

Due to the results of the 1950 U.S. Census, North Carolina was again authorized to send twelve (12) delegates to the U.S. House of Representatives. All North Carolina Districts remained the same as before even with small population shifts.
