Biographical Note:

Robert Stewart Taylor was born May 22, 1838 in Chillicothe, Ohio. He moved to Jay County Indiana in 1844. He attended Liber College in Portland, Indiana and graduated in 1858. After graduation, he studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1860. He married Fanny W. Wright in 1858 and they had one son, Frank. He and his wife moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1859 where they settled for the duration of their lives.

Taylor was an attorney in Fort Wayne from 1860-1918 in patent law. He was the Prosecuting attorney for the Allen County Criminal Court in 1867 and a judge of the Court of Pleas in Allen County from 1867-1870. He made an attempt at a political career where he was first elected, as a Republican, to the Indiana House of Representatives in 1871-1872. He was the unsuccessful Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in 1874 and 1880. Taylor was a member of the U.S. Mississippi River Commission from 1881-1914. He was the chairman of the American Bar Association Committee on Patents, Trademark, and Copyright Law in 1909; and a trustee of Wabash College. Taylor passed away on January 28, 1918 in Fort Wayne.

Scope and Content Note:

This collection spans from 1860-1918 with the bulk of the materials covering the 1870s-1910s. The papers mostly consist of Taylor’s legal correspondence with an emphasis on his patent cases. Among these materials is correspondence regarding patent cases involving the Fort Wayne Electric Company, Westinghouse, General Electric, American Bell Telephone Company, and various other companies and utilities. The correspondence of his cases in the Fort Wayne area includes such topics as contracts, property, and civil suits. There is much correspondence regarding the work of the ABA Committee on Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Law, especially its efforts to create a Court of Patent Appeals. Also included here are Taylor’s correspondence on Republican Party politics, the Mississippi River Commission, and his work as a trustee of Wabash College. There is also a small, but significant amount of personal correspondence sprinkled throughout the collection.

The letter books, the first twenty-five volumes, mainly consist of legal correspondence. There is also one volume of political correspondence and one volume of reports for the Mississippi River Commission.

These papers are broken up in to two series, Papers, consisting of legal correspondence, personal correspondence, business papers, and one speech, and Letter books. The papers are organized chronologically as well as are the letter books.
