Azie Taylor Morton was the first and only African-American to hold the position of Treasurer of the United States. Despite hardships, Ms. Morton excelled by entering one of the highest offices in the land.

Born February 1, 1936 in Dale, Texas, Morton worked in the cotton fields as a teen. Because Dale didn’t have anypublic schools for Black children, she attended the Texas Blind, Deaf, and Orphan School although she suffered none of those issues. In 1952, she entered all-Black school Huston-Tillotson University, graduating with a degree in commercial education.

Morton tried to enroll in the University of Texas’ graduate program but was denied because of her race. Taylor began teaching at a Texas school for delinquent girls, and later began working for Huston-Tillotson.
