US Congressman. Born in Ardmore, Oklahoma, near Boggy Depot, Indian Territory, he was of Cherokee and Chickasaw heritage. He served the Chickasaw Nation as auditor of public accounts, council member, superintendent of schools and was mining trustee of Indian Territory. Upon the admission of Oklahoma as a State, he was elected as a Democrat to the Sixtieth Congress and to the next nine succeeding Congresses, serving from 1907 to 1927. While in office, he worked on legislation affecting Oklahoma's Indians and played a role in keeping Indian homesteads under the protection of the Federal Government. After leaving Congress, Carter returned to Oklahoma, where he served on the Oklahoma Highway Commission, until his death at age 60.
