About Floyd Ernest Maytubby

Born in Caddo, Indian Territory (now Oklahoma), to Samuel and Lula (Maben) Maytubby on November 27, 1893, Floyd Ernest Maytubby attended the Harley Institute in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. After graduation, he became a banker. Maytubby married Frances Elizabeth Leecraft in Oklahoma City on June 30, 1917. He served in World War I as a field artillery officer. In 1939, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt appointed Maytubby governor of the Chickasaw Nation, a position he held for 24 years. Maytubby succeeded Douglas H. Johnston, who had been appointed in 1906 and served for 33 years. While governor, Maytubby promoted legislation that gave the Department of the Interior the authority to negotiate with the Chickasaw and Choctaw for the sale of their coal deposits. He also worked for the passage of legislation that would lead to the formation of the Indian Claims Commission (ICC). Upon his retirement from Chickasaw politics, Maytubby entered the insurance business. He died on February 24, 1963.


My wife is descended from Isom Maytubby, a Chickasaw Indian born in Mississippi in the late 1700s or early 1800s. Isom and his family moved (or were moved) to the Indian Territory, which later became Oklahoma. Isom's great-grandson was Floyd Maytubby, born 1893. He passed away in 1963. Floyd E. Maytubby was the Chickasaw Governor from 1939 until his death in 1963. I'm pretty sure this is the same Floyd Maytubby.
