Biographical / Historical

Katherine E., Charles Call, and Helen B. Liebler were the children of Joseph and Rebecca Liebler. Joseph was a mill operator in Rush Hill, Missouri. He was eventually forced to become a sharecropper before 1900. Because of the economic hardships, all three children had to work outside the home, and Charles was the only one to attend college, earning his BS in education from the University of Missouri in 1917, his MA from Columbia in 1926, and his law degree from The University of Tulsa in 1938. He was admitted to the Oklahoma Bar in 1940.

During his life, Charles spent more than 25 years with the Tulsa School System. After that he had a full time law practice and served as a Tulsa Municipal Judge.

Katherine worked as a Floor Supervisor for Union Electric in St. Louis, while Helen owned a collection agency. Neither married but worked to pull together the money for this scholarship.
