Biography

Royal S. Copeland, physician, public health officer, newspaper columnist, and United States Senator, was born November 7, 1868 in Dexter, Michigan. He received his M.D. degree from the University of Michigan in 1889. After some postgraduate study in Europe, he practiced medicine in Bay City from 1890 to 1895. From 1895 to 1908, he was professor in the Homeopathic Medical College of the University of Michigan. For part of this time from 1901 to 1903, Copeland was elected and served as mayor of Ann Arbor, Michigan.

In 1908, Copeland moved to New York City where he became dean of the Flower Hospital Medical College. Here he developed a reputation as an eye specialist, teacher, and medical writer. In 1918, the mayor of New York selected Copeland to be the city's commissioner of public health. He was an able administrator who used his own newspaper column as well as other publicity to educate the public about matters of health.

In 1922, Copeland was nominated (and later elected) as the compromise Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. He was reelected in 1928 and again in 1934. While in the Senate, Copeland demonstrated a special interest in pure food and drug legislation. He is best known for the Copeland-Lea Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Bill that was passed in 1938 after five years of labor. Although a Democrat, Copeland frequently opposed President Roosevelt and his New Deal legislation. Notably, Copeland was a leading opponent of Roosevelt's court reform plan.

In 1937, Copeland was persuaded to seek the nomination for mayor of New York. He ran in both party primaries and lost in both despite the support of Al Smith.

Copeland died while still serving as a United States senator on June 17, 1938.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The Royal Copeland collection, consisting primarily of correspondence, speeches and writings, scrapbooks, and articles, relates primarily to Copeland's medical career as professor of homeopathic medicine at the University of Michigan, dean of the New York Homeopathic Medical College and Flower Hospital, and New York City Commissioner of Public Health, and as United States Senator.
