A collection of correspondence and
journals of American Brigadier-General Walter Scribner Schuyler.
Walter Scribner Schuyler was born in 1850, the son of George Washington Schuyler (of the
colonial Schuyler family of New York) and Matilda (Scribner) Schuyler. Walter S. Schuyler
graduated from West Point and served with the United States Army in the trans-Mississippi
West during the 1870s and 1880s, developing a close relationship with General George Crook.
During and after the Spanish-American War, he saw duty in Puerto Rico, the Philippines, and
Cuba and also was assigned as a military observer in Manchuria during the Russo-Japanese War
in 1904. After Schuyler's retirement from the army in 1913, he devoted himself fully to the
affairs of the Sierra-Alaska Mining Company of California, of which he became the president
and general-manager. From 1920 he made his home in Carmel, California and in February 1932
he died in San Francisco, California.
