As a representative to the Theta

traveling. The convention was held

Portland's First Woman Mayor
Advises Vocational Preperation
By Estelle Nordgren
\\ hat does it take to become a woman mavor?”
iMis. Doiothy McCullough Lee, Portlands first woman
mayoi-elect, answcied the (juestioii with customary gracious
ncss and thoroughness.
Since it s still a man s world to some extent, a woman lias

She believes that women of to
morrow- should prepare them
selves today to do their part, in
proportion to their intelligence,
education, and experience.
“It is particularly important that
a girl se{ the* specific training for
the vocation of her choice. If at
all possible, she should get it ’all in
one piece.’ The girl who interrupts
her education to work finds it much
more difficult to resume it.”
Mrs. Lee made up her mind to be
an attorney while attending San
Francisco high school. After get
ting her BA degree at the Univer
sity of California at Berkeley, she
earned a doctorate in jurisprudence
in 1923 at the law school there. She
practiced law until her marriage to
W. Scott Lee in 1924.
More Opportunities Now
“In my generation,” she continu
ed, woman's job horizon was limit
ed. But today you can find success

or. There is an unlimited future for

West Coast population stimulate

ly self-sufficient, with a large vista
of opportunity for both men and
Mrs. Lee had just returned from
the American Public Works cong
ress in Boston. She also appeared
before the New York Herald Tri
bune forum in New York. She
recently visted and studied U. S.
cities under the city manager form
of government. A Portland public
utilities commissioner, she carried
on a high standard of campaigning
on a constructive basis, and was
swept into office on one of the most
overwhelming votes of confidence
in Oregon's political history.
“When I take office as mayor of
Portland in January 1949,” stated
Mrs. Lee, “my new duties will not
be a radical departure from those
I’ve become used to in 20 eyars Of
public service. My ambition is to
give my city efficient, clean sound
administ ration.
Early Start in Politics
Mrs. Lee got her start in politics
when a group of civic-minded wo
men chose her to represent their
viewpoint in legislature. A com
paratively unknown Portland attor
ney in 1926, she was defeated in the
race for representative. “By then,”
she reminisced, “I’d smelled
smoke.” Two years later she ran
again and tasted triumph.
A careful student of all types of
legislation, she was especially
forthright about measures affect
ing women, children, welfare, edu
cation, and employment. She was
in the legislature 15 years and on
the Portland city council 8 years.
Miss Gladys M. Everett who with
Mrs. Lee formed the first Portland
all-women law partnership, became
the first woman to act as municipal
judge. Mrs. Lee followed her pre
cedent in 1943, serving on the court
bench during the absence of Judge
Julius Cohn.
Regarding women in politics Mrs.
Lee advises that they must first
realize that sex has no place in poli
tics. They must never seek or per
mil special favors or deferment on
(lie part of men. Above all, they
should not indulge in personalities,
lint work toward an impersonal
goal. “Men will support women,”
she concluded, "if convinced they
are well-informed, realistic, anil
sincere in their purposes.”
‘iClubs have taught women to
think together and act as units. The
next step is for women to work as
individuals, discarding sensitive
ness and learning to be objective.
This calls for more courage, for an
individual loses much of the moral
support of a group and must learn
to depend on resources from within
She believes that women in pub
lic life help maintain the balance as
they share responsibilities, discard
sex consciousness, and work togeth
er with men to solve problems
equally affecting all humanity.
Family Comes First
“Of course,” she added, “mar
riage is the natural thing for wo
men under ordinary circumstances.
I was married when 23 years old
and came as a bride to Portland,
where ‘Scottie’ had his business. I
took 4 or 5 months to find an apart
ment, make curtains, and get ad
mitted to the bar before taking up
my law practice here.”
Mr. and Mrs. W. Scott Lee have
two adopted children, David Scott,
12, and Priscilla Dorothy, 10. Mr.
Scott is special sales representative
for an oil company. “I want our
childr en to do the things that give
them the most satisfaction and hap
piness; I will never dominate their
thinking,” she stated.
Although Mrs. Lee liked her home
town, San Francisco, she feels!
Portland is more of a “home” town.
“There is more room for homes,
gardens, and raising children in the
busy day at the city hall by listen
Ftose City.” She relaxes after a
ing to music. Tschaikowsky is her
favorite composer.
Talk of “calculated risk” is be
ginning to grate on the nerves of
the gambler who knows that the
only proper bet is the sure thing.
