The beauty
queen who
lost a leg
Roberta Scott was a beauty queen back in the sixties when her life suddenly took a new turn.

The former Miss Tulsa and runner-up in the Miss Oklahoma Beauty Pageant of 1961 had to face a chocking fact: she had cancer in her left leg and it had to be amputated.
   The surgery took place in 1964. But Roberta was determined to live a full life as an amputee. Earlier she aimed at a carreer as a singer and dancer. Now she turned her attention to public relations and work for disabled people. Among her awards can be mentioned U.S. Handicapped Professional Woman of the Year and Tulsa Community Service Award.




Even after the amputation, Roberta Scott contributed to develop the "Tulsa sound".
