Elmer Ebenezer Studley (1869-1942) led a distinguished career in public life in which, as soldier or as congressman, he served his country dutifully. A descendant of Henry Dunster, first president of Harvard College, Studley was born on a farm near East Ashford, New York. He was educated at Springville (N.Y.) High School, and received his undergraduate degree (1892) and law degree (1894) from Cornell University. After working as a lawyer and journalist in Buffalo, he served as a first lieutenant in Cuba in the 202nd Regiment of the New York Volunteer Infantry during the Spanish-American War (1898-99). Studley then moved to New Mexico. He embarked upon a career in territorial and state politics and was a candidate for Presidential elector on the Progressive ticket of Theodore Roosevelt in 1912. He practiced law for eighteen years.
