Walter Scribner Schuyler (April 26, 1850 – February 17, 1932) was the first Commander of the United States Army Pacific Command, then called the Military District of Hawaii, from 1909 to 1910. A veteran of the Spanish–American War, he graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1870. He was commissioned into the United States Cavalry.
Schuyler's first combat service was in the Indian campaigns, during which he fought in Arizona, Wyoming, Montana, and Colorado. In Wyoming, Schuyler participated in a grueling 1876 march under General George Crook that forced the cavalrymen to eat their own horses. He then served as professor of military science at Cornell University. During the Spanish–American War, he served in Puerto Rico, Cuba, and the Philippines.
After the Spanish–American War, General Schuyler served as a military observer with the Russian army in Manchuria in 1904. From 1904 through 1906, he served on the General Staff of the United States Army. After his Hawaiian command, the Army promoted him to Brigadier General on 1911-01-05. He commanded an independent cavalry brigade in San Antonio before serving as the Commanding General for Fort Riley, Kansas from 1911 through 1912. Before his retirement in 1913, Schuyler's last command was the 8th Brigade. He died on February 17, 1932.
