E.B. “Hugh” Maytubby was born June 27, 1892. He assumed governorship in May of 1963, following the death of his nephew, Governor Floyd Maytubby. E.B. Maytubby held the position of governor until October 1963, to carry out the remainder of Floyd Maytubby’s term. During this time, there was a huge push for the Chickasaw tribe to elect their own leaders and to demand more sovereignty.
Later on, the former governor of the Chickasaw Nation was appointed as chairman of the local civic committee of the Da-Co-Tah Indian Club’s American Indian museum project. Maytubby was proud of his Chickasaw heritage and dedicated much of his life’s work to furthering the progress of the Chickasaw people. He passed away in May of 1970.
