Biographical Note:

Schuyler Colfax was born in New York City 23 March 1823. In 1836 the family moved to New Carlisle, Indiana. After education in local schools, he was appointed deputy auditor of St. Joseph County in 1841. He married Evelyn Chase in 1844. Colfax became a legislative correspondent for the Indiana State Journal, he then became part owner of the South Bend Free Press and changed its name in 1845 to the St. Joseph Valley Register. He also served as a member of the Indiana Constitutional Convention in 1850.

Elected to the national House of Representatives in 1854, he served seven terms. From 1859 to 1861 he was chairman of the Committee on Post Offices and Post Roads, and was responsible for reorganizing the overland mail service to California. In 1863 Colfax was elected Speaker of the House of Representatives, and held this office for three terms. He was not a candidate for reelection in 1868 since he was the Republican nominee for Vice-President. He was elected Vice-President of the United States on the ticket headed by Gen. Ulysses S. Grant in 1868.

Colfax was an unsuccessful candidate for the Vice-Presidential nomination in 1872 due to the fact he was implicated in the Credit Mobilier scandal. Colfax was among those members of Congress accused by Oakes Ames of receiving stock and dividends in the company in return for their influence. This incident effectively ended his political career.

Colfax continued on as a lecturer, speaking both about his travels and various other subjects. He died in Mankato, Minnesota 13 January 1885 and was interred in South Bend, Indiana.

Scope and Content Note:

The collection consists of correspondence and papers from 1782?1929, though the bulk of the materials cover the period 1841?1886. The majority of this collection is correspondence relating to Colfax regarding Whig and Republican Party politics in Indiana and nationally, but is also important as a collection of autographs. Some of the prominent individuals include: Abraham Lincoln, U.S. Grant, P.T. Barnum, Henry Ward Beecher, Albert J. Beveridge, William H. Calkins, Lucretia Rudolph Garfield, Horace Greeley, Benjamin Harrison, Henry Smith Lane, Daniel Pratt, Elihu Root, Kline Shyrock, Edwin Stanton, Charles Sumner, and Lew Wallace.

Additional materials include correspondence belonging to Colfax's son and wife, miscellaneous and undated materials, e.g., speeches and notes, and genealogical information gathered by a Colfax descendent.

This collection is organized chronologically.
