1Title:  William C. McFarland Papers     
 Creator:  McFarland, William C. 
 Dates:  1855-1930 
 Abstract:  William C. McFarland (b. 1838-?) was born in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, of Scots-Irish extraction. He was a descendant of the McFarlane Clan of Loch Sloy, Scotland. He was educated in Pennsylvania, and taught in Kentucky from 1859-1861. He then attended Ohio State and Union Law College of Cleveland, Ohio, graduating with a degree of A.B. In 1862 McFarland practiced law in Cleveland until 1864, when he joined the Quartermaster's Department of the Union Army at Nashville, Tennessee. He resumed his law practice in Cleveland after the war. He was elected by the Republican Party as a representative from Cuyahoga County to the Ohio General Assembly in 1871, serving until 1873. In 1875, he formed the law firm Critchfield & McFarland, engaging in corporate and commercial law. It was in business for two years, and following its demise, McFarland traveled to Europe. He wrote many letters during time spent overseas, detailing his experiences and observations to the Cleveland Herald. McFarland was a conservative Republican politician. In addition, he was ranked among the most successful lawyers in Cleveland. The collection consists of anecdotes, articles, essays, newspaper clippings, postcards, and speeches.
