He was born in Weyauwega, Wisconsin on August 26, 1857. He went to the state normal school in Oshkosh, Wisconsin (now University of Wisconsin–Oshkosh). He became a principal of high schools in Weyauwega and Liscomb, Iowa. After graduating from the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1880, he was admitted to the bar and set up practice in Fullerton, Nebraska. He was the prosecuting attorney for Nance County, Nebraska from 1881 to 1884.[1][2]

In 1884 Meiklejohn was elected a member of the Nebraska State Senate, serving from 1884 to 1888. In 1886, he became President of the Senate, in 1887 the chairman of the Republican State convention, and in 1887 and 1888 chairman of the Republican State central committee. In 1889 he became the Lieutenant Governor of Nebraska and served until 1891. He was elected as a Republican to the 53rd and 54th Congresses (March 4, 1893 – March 3, 1897), but did not run for re-election in 1896. On April 14, 1897, U.S. President William McKinley appointed him the Assistant Secretary of War and he served through the Spanish–American War until March 1901, when he resigned.[1]

Meiklejohn ran unsuccessfully for election to the United States Senate from Nebraska in 1901 to fill the seat of Monroe Hayward. After that, he resumed his law practice in Omaha, Nebraska, moving to Los Angeles, California in 1918, where he practiced law and mining.

He died in poverty at the Los Angeles County General Hospital in Los Angeles, California on April 19, 1929.[1] He was buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, California.[2]
