Who was Daniel Webster?
Daniel Webster (1872-1852) was born in Salisbury, New Hampshire. After graduating from Dartmouth College, he became an attorney in Boston. His exceptional skills as an orator earned him fame, and he is known for his strong support of the federal government and a defender of the Constitution. Webster argued a number of important cases before the Supreme Court, and he influenced Chief Justice John Marshall’s opinions, and thus ended up impacting the development of constitutional law. One of his most famous speeches was in response to Robert Hayne in 1830 where Webster eloquently defended the powers of the federal government over states’ rights. He concluded with the appeal: “Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inseparable!” The speech made him a hero of nationalists throughout the North. Webster was the leader of the Whig party, and as a United States Congressman and Senator, he advocated for stimulation of the economy through tariffs, improvement to transportation, and the establishment of a national bank. He later became Secretary of State in 1840 under President Harrison, and he is known a one of the greatest to ever hold this position. Webster died while serving as Secretary of State under President Fillmore.
Webster personally believed that slavery was morally wrong, so he did not own slaves, but the fact that he was willing to compromise his beliefs to please the southern states has infuriated many.
Webster was a successful lawyer and public servant. To do so, he would have displayed the Tulsa Public Schools’ core value of excellence.
Built in 1938, Webster High School features 20 beautifully landscaped acres for our Webster students. Webster proudly continues to serve multiple generations of Westside families, and continues to welcome students from all over Tulsa who will be served by our highly qualified staff utilizing the latest strategies to prepare students to be college and career ready! The school is named for statesman Daniel Webster.

enthusiastic school spirit and school loyalty;
To dispel ignorance with learning,
and to strive for the highest scholastic attainment
of which I am capable;

To be worthy of the best fellowship of the student body,
and to conduct myself in such a manner
that I shall never bring shame upon my school;
To serve God and my country to the best of my ability.
