Karl Cortlandt Schuyler (April 3, 1877 – July 31, 1933) was a Colorado attorney who served in the United States Senate from 1932 to 1933.

Early life

Born and raised in Colorado Springs, Schuyler was the son of Frederick and Eleanor (Nellie) Farnan Schuyler. His father was a native of New York, and his mother was born in Illinois. Schuyler attended the public schools of Colorado Springs, after which he became an employee of the Colorado Midland Railroad and taught school.

Schuyler was a descendant of Harmanus Schuyler (1727-1796), a cousin of Philip Schuyler, who served as an Assistant Deputy Commissary General during the American Revolution, responsible for acquiring and distributing supplies and equipment to soldiers of the Continental Army. As a result of this relationship, Karl Schuyler was a member of the Sons of the American Revolution.


He graduated from the University of Denver's law school in 1898, and was admitted to the bar. Schuyler practiced in Cripple Creek, and then Colorado Springs until he moved to Denver in 1905. Schuyler was a successful corporate attorney, and served as general counsel for the Florence and Cripple Creek Railroad, Midland Terminal Railway, Colorado Telephone Company, and the United States Reduction and Refining Company. He was a founder of the Midwest Oil and Refining Company, and served on the board of directors and as the company's counsel. In addition, he served as president of the Flower of the West Gold Mining Company and the Merritt Oil Corporation, and a member of the board of directors of the Gulf Oil Companies and the Amalgamated Royalty Oil Corporation.

In addition to practicing law, Schuyler was a civic activist; he was member of the board of trustees for both the University of Denver and the Colorado Women's College. During World War I, he was an organizer of several Liberty bond campaigns in Colorado, as well as fundraising campaigns for the American Red Cross.

United States Senator

A Republican, Schuyler was a delegate to the 1916 Republican National Convention, and chairman of Colorado's 1919 state Republican convention. He was an unsuccessful candidate for the U.S. Senate in 1920.

In 1932, he was elected to the Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Charles W. Waterman; he served from December 7, 1932 to March 3, 1933. He was an unsuccessful candidate for the full term beginning on March 4, 1933. After leaving the Senate, Schuyler resumed the practice of law in Denver.

Fatal accident

Schuyler was struck by an automobile in New York City on July 17, 1933; he had been staying at the St. Regis Hotel, and was walking in Central Park when the accident occurred.

Death and burial

He was hospitalized for his injuries, and died on July 31.[1] Schuyler had given the police an alias at the time of the accident, later stating that he did so because he believed his injuries were not serious and he didn't want to alarm his friends and family. He provided his real name when he was admitted to Lenox Hill Hospital, but the police report wasn't corrected until after his death. His wife was notified of the accident while he was hospitalized, and she arrived from Denver in time to be at his bedside when he died. Interment was in the Fairmount Mausoleum at Fairmount Cemetery, Denver, Colorado.


In 1905, Schuyler married Delia Alsena Shepard of Colorado Springs. They were the parents of a son, Karl, Jr., and a daughter, Eleanor.
