Madie Boyette Macklin
Birth: Jan. 29, 1929
Ashley County

Death: Oct. 13, 2005
Saint Louis
St. Louis County
Missouri, USA

Educator and civil rights activist. Madie Macklin was born Madie Boyette in White, Arkansas. She received her bachelor's degree in education in 1950 from Stowe Teacher's College, now Harris-Stowe State University, and her master's degree in education from Washington University in 1954. She also attended St. Louis University School of Law and the University of Missouri at St. Louis, where she pursued postgraduate studies in counseling. Madie met and married another educator, Charles Williams Macklin, in 1951. The Macklins played a substantial role in civil rights protests in St. Louis, and was a part of the 1963 demonstration at Jefferson Bank and Trust Company, a protest resulting from the bank's policy of not hiring blacks. Madie Macklin taught in several St. Louis public schools, including Carver, Washington and Clark elementary and secondary schools and the former O'Fallon Technical High School. Her teaching career in St. Louis spanned more than 40 years, with one of her classes being among the first integrated in St. Louis. Madie Macklin is survived by her daughters Jerry Macklin of St. Louis, Missouri, Daphne Macklin of Sacramento, California, and Michelle Macklin Burton of New York City; a son, Brian Macklin of Seattle; two sisters, Daisy Boyette Gaines and Louise Ann Boyd, both of St. Louis; and a grandson.
