Karl Cortlandt Schuyler (April 3, 1877 – July 31, 1933) was a United States Senator from Colorado.

Born in Colorado Springs, he attended the public schools in that city and worked on the Colorado Midland Railroad. He graduated from the law school of the University of Denver in 1898, and was admitted to the bar the same year and commenced practice in Colorado Springs. In 1905, he moved to Denver, where he continued the practice of law; he was also a trustee of the University of Denver and of the Colorado Woman's College at Denver.

Schuyler was an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination to the U.S. Senate in 1920, although he was elected to the Senate on November 8, 1932 to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Charles W. Waterman. Schuyler served in the Senate from December 7, 1932 to March 3, 1933. He was an unsuccessful candidate for the full term beginning on March 4, 1933. He resumed the practice of law in Denver and was struck by an automobile and fatally injured in New York City on July 17, 1933, and died two weeks later on July 31. [1]

Interment was in the Fairmount Mausoleum at Fairmount Cemetery, Denver, Colorado.
