Lloyd L. Duxbury, Jr. (February 1, 1922 – March 23, 2002) was a Minnesota politician and was a former member of the Minnesota House of Representatives representing the old districts 1 and 1B, which included all or portions of Houston and Winona counties in the southeastern part of the state. He was also House Speaker from 1963-1971 and Minority Leader from 1959-1963.[1]

Duxbury was first elected to the House in 1950 at a time when candidates, representatives and leadership positions were officially non-partisan. He allied with the House's Conservative Caucus, and was known to be a Republican. He was re-elected nine times.[2] When the Conservative Caucus gained a majority in 1963, he became Speaker by one vote over Aubrey Dirlam, and held the position until his retirement from the House in 1971, when he was succeeded by Dirlam.[3]

Duxbury was offered the position of United States Attorney for Minnesota by President Richard Nixon in 1969, but declined. After leaving the Legislature, he became a lobbyist for and vice president of Burlington Northern Railroad.[4]

Duxbury died in 2002.
