About H. Roe Bartle

H. Roe Bartle SpeakingH. Roe Bartle was a national figure with a reputation as a businessman, philanthropist, politician and nonprofit executive. Bartle became the Scout Executive for the Kansas City Area Council and served in that role for 27 years until his retirement in 1955. For nearly 30 years, the Chief, as he was often called, led the Kansas City Area Council, now the Heart of America Council of the Boy Scouts of America. From 1948-1950, Bartle also served as interim president for Missouri Valley College. During this period he realized his vision for preparing talent for the nonprofit workforce. The first American Humanics students graduated from Missouri Valley College in 1952. Also having served two terms as Mayor of Kansas City (1955-1963), it is no coincidence that the Kansas City Chiefs have their name.
