Biography
ROBERT WALKER TAYLER (1852-1910), a Republican, represented Ohio in the US House of Representatives for four terms (1895-1903). As Chairman of the Elections Committee, he introduced the successful 1899 motion declaring Utah's Congressional seat vacant because its Representative (Brigham Roberts) was a polygamist. In 1905, Tayler was appointed a US District Court Judge for northern Ohio. In 1909, Tayler issued a court order resolving Cleveland's transit strife involving the transportation companies, the workers, and the city government. The resulting fare formula, which remained in place for decades, was called the Tayler Grant.
