He was elected to the 50th U.S. Congress (1887-1889) and was appointed the U.S. Minister to the Netherlands and Luxembourg from August of 1911 to September of 1913. Bryce wrote novels as well as engaged in politics, publishing Paradise (1887), The romance of an alter ego (1889), Friends in exile (1893), and Lady Blanche's salon (1899).

Lloyd Stephens Bryce was a politician and author who was born on September 20, 1851, at Flushing, Long Island. After a boyhood in Georgetown, D.C., he traveled in Europe and graduated from Christ Church, Oxford, in 1874. Bryce returned to the United States and in 1879 married Edith Cooper of New York. After receiving a law degree he entered politics, winning a seat in the U.S. Congress in 1886. His novel Paradise appeared the next year and, following his defeat for re-election to Congress, Bryce turned to literature, publishing The Romance of an Alter Ego (1889; reissued as An Extraordinary Experience in 1891), Friends in Exile (1893), and Lady Blanche's Salon (1899).

At the same time, Bryce served as editor of the North American Review following the death of his predecessor, Allen Thorndike Rice, in 1889. Bryce assumed the editorship in September and continued in that capacity until 1896.

Bryce subsequently served as the U.S. minister to the Netherlands and Luxembourg from August, 1911, to September, 1913. He was a delegate to the Opium Conference of 1913 and was an honorary vice-president of a Conference on Bills of Exchange. He died on April 2, 1917.
