As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Dr. Pate is renowned as a retired history and government professor who taught at Tarrant County College in Fort Worth, Texas, between 1968 and 2000. Prior to her tenure at the aforementioned college, she taught for the Fort Worth School District for seven years. Although she is no longer in the classroom, Dr. Pate continues to conduct research and publish books in her areas of expertise.

Moreover, Dr. Pate found success as a weekly contributor of the Azle News, a newspaper that serves parts of Tarrant, Parker and Wise counties near Azle, Texas, for nearly 50 years.

Studying journalism and history as an undergraduate, Dr. Pate ultimately decided not to pursue a fulltime writing career because she felt that there would be too much pressure working for a daily newspaper. However, she did obtain a scholarship, which enabled her to complete her master's degree. She initially pursued an education at Texas Christian University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in history and journalism in 1960 and a Master of Arts in history in 1964. Certified as a teacher in the state of Texas, Dr. Pate graduated from the University of North Texas with a Doctor of Philosophy in history in 1982.

A fellow and member of the Texas State Historical Association, Dr. Pate was honored with a Coral H. Tullis Award in 1989.
