James Sullivan Clarkson (May 17, 1842 – May 30, 1918) was a delegate to each Republican National Convention from 1876 to 1896; a member of the Republican National Committee from 1880 to 1896; chairman of the Committee from 1891 to 1892, and President of the Republican League of the United States from 1891 to 1893. He was born in Brookville, Indiana but raised a native of Polk County, Iowa. He married Anna Howell, and together they had three children.[1]

He served as postmaster of Des Moines from 1871 to 1877, and was twice offered an ambassadorship (to Switzerland in 1869, and to China in 1890), but declined both.[2]

On April 18, 1902, he was appointed by Theodore Roosevelt as surveyor of the Port of New York until 1910.[3][4]

He died at the home of his son Grosvenor in Newark,[5] New Jersey with his wife by his side. Clarkson was buried in the family mausoleum in Des Moines, Iowa.[6]
