This noted architect and sculptor of Cleveland, Ohio -- the first Cleveland architect to join the American Institute of Architects -- built many important public buildings and monuments in that city; he served with the 103rd Regiment Ohio Volunteers and authored the 1909 study of the Franklin campaign, "The Retreat from Pulaski to Nashville, Tennessee." Partly-printed ADS, 1p, 17" X 11", n.p., 1863 December 1. Near fine. Form for obtaining payment for servants, filled out and signed by Scofield, who adds rank and title "1st Lieut. & Act. Topographical Engineer / 3d. Division 23d. A.C." He checks various columns to claim one months' pay and subsistence for his servant "John," whose complexion, eyes and hair he all notes as "Black." He also notes payment coming from U.S. Army Paymaster John Coon -- his uncle, by the way -- and Coon also signs. One of Scofield's most notable monuments is his Civil War monument "These Are My Jewels" -- a document from the 21-year-old future architect from his Civil War period is extremely unusual and desireable.
