A mile to the north of Carter, Oklahoma a group of Pentecostal Holiness people formed a settlement called Beulah, taking the name from Scripture found in Isaiah 62:4. With Frank Talmadge ALEXANDER spearheading the venture, a college was built in 1906. The location was in the vicinty of the present Baptist Church. An imposing ediface, it was three stories tall with a large basement in which religious a newspaper was published. The college was named Emanuel Bible School. Daniel AWERY was the dean. Among the teachers were R.E.WINSETT and Mrs. J.A. HIGH. Mrs. AWREY was the Bible teacher. In 1909, the village of Carter moved to its present site and the name was changed from Buelah to CARTER.

EMANUEL BIBLE SCHOOL*** Beulah (now CARTER)Oklahoma By:Francas CHESTER ----
My father,Frank Talmedge ALEXANDER, who founded Emanuel Bible School, was born December 28,1873, near Chalk Mountain, Texas. My mother's name was Nettie Ella EILAND. She was born near Chalk Mountain ,April 23,1874. Father passed away in Los Angeles in 1954. Mother passed away February 14,1940 at Visalia,California. Father filed on land where Carter,Oklahoma, is now located in 1898. He started the Bible School there in 1907. Brother HAIR and Brother HIGH and Brother STREET helped to start that work. Father got the name "Beulah"out of the Bible from Isaiah 62:4. The Bible school was not a college,but a school for all ages.R.E.WINSETT was one of the teachers and Brother ORWEY was a Bible teacher. The school building was built in 1907 and it burned in the fall of 1910. A paper was published "Apostolic Faith." I don't think a copy could be found. I know of none. I can't recall how many students were enrolled in the Bible School. The most at any one time would not exceeded forty, I feel sure. I had six brothers, Calvin, Monta, Roy, Wesley, Sam and Paul.They have all passed away but Roy and Wesley. I have two sisters, Ruby and Jewel. All of my family that are alive live here in California except Ruby who lives in Arizona. We left Carter in 1911 and went to Oklahoma City. From there we went to South Texas in 1912. We went back to Oklahoma in 1915 locating at Vinson in Harmon County. We came to California in 1934 and settled at Visalia. ****Emanuel Bible School was a project of people of the Pentecostal Denomination.They planned a colony named "Beulah"which was later changed to the town of Carter,Oklahoma
