She married George Steele Seymour in 1915 and worked for the United States Indian Service while getting her degrees. Seymour and her husband organized the Order of Bookfellows, a national society of writers and readers. She became the first woman member of the Board of Indian Commissioners in 1922, and in 1926 began writing about the Native Americans she had studied.
