William Miller Jenkins, Republican. He served from May 1901 to November 1901, when he was removed from office by President Roosevelt on November 30. Born April 25, 1856, in Alliance, Ohio, he received his education there. In Shelby County, Louisiana, he was admitted to the bar in 1893, before moving to Arkansas City, Kansas, to begin his law practice. He made the race into the Cherokee Outlet September 16, 1893, and secured a homestead in Kay County. He served as Secretary of the Territory from June 1897 until he became Governor May 12, 1901. Criticism about his handling of matters at a private sanitarium in Norman and the death of President McKinley led to his removal from office in 1901. After a few years in California he returned to Oklahoma and lived in Sapulpa until his death October 19, 1941. He is buried in Southern Heights Cemetery in Sapulpa.
