Wallace McCamant Papers, 1867-1944

McCamant, Wallace, 1867-1944. Wallace McCamant was born in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania in 1867. He was educated at Lafayette College, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, read law with a Lancaster firm, and was admitted to the bar in 1890. He came to Oregon in 1890 and practiced law. He was appointed to the Oregon Supreme Court in 1916, resigned in 1918, and resumed private law practice. McCamant was a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 1920, and nominated Calvin Coolidge for the vice-presidency. In 1925, Coolidge nominated him to the Circuit Court of Appeals but the nomination failed confirmation because of opposition by Senator Hiram Johnson. McCamant died in 1944.

Collection consists of correspondence relating to McCamant's support of Coolidge and opposition by Johnson. There are five Coolidge letters, 1920 and 1923, and a collection of McCamant's speeches. Also included are the diaries of Lt. Thomas McCamant, Company G., 125th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers, 1862-1863, and a memoir by him, "Personal Recollections of the Maryland Campaign of 1862" (1903).
