Alice Mary Robertson Life

Alice Mary Robertson (January 2, 1854–1931) was an American educator, social worker, and politician who became the second woman to serve in the United States Congress, and the first from Oklahoma.

Robertson was the first woman to depose an incumbent congressman.

She was known for her attractive appearance, dedication to Native American issues, and anti-feminist standouts. Robertson was the only woman elected from Oklahoma to Congress before Mary Fallin's re-election in 2006.

Education, teaching, and early public service were all emphasized early in life.

Robertson was born at the Tullahassee Mission in the Indian Territory's Creek Country, and to missionaries Ann Eliza (née Worcester) and William Schenck Robertson. Samuel Worcester, a long-serving missionary to the Cherokees, was her maternal grandfather. According to the 1860 United States Census, the family lives in Creek Country, Indian Lands, Arkansas. Many of her children's books were converted into the Creek language, including the Bible. Mary Alice Robertson was self-taught under the guidance of her parents from an early age. She attended Elmira College in Elmira, New York.

Robertson started working as a clerk in the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) in Washington, D.C. (1873 to 1879). She returned to the Indian Territory and taught briefly in the school at Tullahassee. Later she taught at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, from 1880 to 1882. It was the model for Indian boarding schools across the country.

Robertson returned to the Indian Territory, and established the Nuyaka Mission. It was run by Presbyterians who reported to the Creek Council. She taught in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, where she had charge of a Presbyterian boarding school for Native American girls. It eventually developed into Henry Kendall College and then the University of Tulsa.

Robertson was appointed by the BIA as the first government supervisor of Creek Indian schools, and she served from 1900 to 1905. She was next appointed by President Theodore Roosevelt as the United States postmaster of Muskogee, Oklahoma, serving from 1905 to 1913. She was the country's first woman postmaster of a Class A post office. During World War I, she provided a canteen service to local troops in what was the start of the Muskogee Chapter of the American Red Cross.
