Mary Wickham Roe taught high school classes for several years, then became a missionary to Native Americans living in the United States and Latin America. She and her husband Walter adopted Henry Roe Cloud, an orphan from the Winnebago Reservation who became the first Native American to graduate from Yale and is considered the most important Indian leader of his generation. Among his accomplishments were conserving Indian lands, protecting the legal rights of Indians, and improving the educational systems of the reservations. Mary was killed in a car accident on June 17, 1941 while attending a mission conference in New Mexico.
