Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection is arranged into 12 series: Audio and Video; Campaigns; Clippings; Issues; Legal Career; Legal Organizations and Associations; Photographs; Political Career; Presidential Campaigns; Speeches; Women in Law and Politics; and Oversized.

The bulk of the material within this collection is comprised of paper records, photographs, sound recordings, and a videotape documenting Betty Roberts’ political and judicial careers (1965-1986). Additional material consists of Roberts’ various interests, activities, speeches, and awards from her public service career as well as after her resignation from the Oregon Supreme Court. The paper records consist of campaign materials and ephemera, correspondence, court books and case files, legislative session reports, media clippings, photographs, posters, publications, reports, studies, speeches and presentations.

There are often two sets of dates assigned to any given folder title. The first set of dates encompasses the material that the folder seeks to collect, while the second date reflects the inclusive dates (e.g., in the Abortion sub-series of the Issues series, there is the folder "1973 Benson v. Johnson, 1971-2009"). This two-date system is a result of Roberts' frequent updates of foldered material. The bulk of these updates are from newspaper/magazine clippings or email correspondence. When only the first date is present, the material in the folder or sub-series is all from that year.

Collection Historical Note

Betty Roberts was born in Arkansas City, Kansas on February 5, 1923. Her family relocated to Texas in the 1930s. She attended Texas Wesleyan College in Fort Worth for one year (1941-1942) before marrying Bill Rice in 1942.   After World War II, they moved to Oregon, where Bill became a banker and Roberts raised their four children.

In 1955, Roberts enrolled in evening classes at Eastern Oregon College in La Grande before the family relocated to Portland. She graduated from Portland State College in 1958 with a Bachelor of Science degree in education.  Roberts earned her Master’s degree in political science in 1962 from the University of Oregon, and her Juris Doctorate from the Northwestern School of Law of Lewis & Clark College in 1966.

Between 1958 and 1967 she taught high school in the Portland area before taking a part-time job teaching business law and political science at Mt. Hood Community College from 1967 until 1976. In 1959 she divorced Rice, and in 1960 married Frank Roberts whom she divorced in 1965. In 1968 she married fellow Representative Keith D. Skelton, but opted to retain the Roberts last name. Together as Skelton & Roberts the couple held a law firm from 1967-1977.

In 1964 and again in 1966, she was elected as a Democrat to the Oregon House of Representatives. In 1968 and again in 1972, she was elected to the Oregon Senate and was the only woman serving in the state senate at that time. In 1974, she ran for governor of Oregon, but lost in the Democratic primary. That same year, following the death of Democratic nominee Wayne Morse, she was chosen to run for United States Senate against Bob Packwood, but was ultimately unsuccessful. Roberts remained in the Oregon Senate until her 1977 appointment to the Oregon Court of Appeals.

In 1977, Roberts was appointed to the Oregon Court of Appeals as the first woman to serve on the court. The next year she ran a successful election to keep her seat on the appeals court for the full six-year term. She resigned from the appeals court in 1982 after Governor Victor Atiyeh appointed her to the Oregon Supreme Court, where she was again the first woman on the court. She retired from the Oregon Supreme Court in 1986.

Since her retirement from the Supreme Court, Betty Roberts has acted as a Senior Judge handling mediations and arbitrations. From 1988-1991 she was a visting professor at Oregon State Universtiy as the Dubach Endowed Chair in Political Science. She has been awarded numerous professional, education, and civic awards and honoraria in recognition of her work. In March 2004, she presided over the first legal same-sex marriage in Oregon.
