Biography of Roger W. Scofield
Arizona Biographies





ROGER WILLIAM SCOFIELD, Superintendent of the Concentrator of the Old Dominion Mining & Smelting Company, was born in Oswego, New York, in 1861. His father, Thomas Scofield, was well known in the civic life of Oswego, while his mother, Mary Bulger Scofield, was a descendant of one of the prominent families of the Empire State. Having completed the high school course, Mr. Scofield took a course in chemistry at the Oswego State Normal School and afterwards worked as assayer and chemist in a number of cities, but he considers the three years spent in Colorado in partnership with Frank Helleburg, of greatest value to him in his life work. Mr. Helleburg was a chemist and assayer of renown, and the firm spent much time in exploration of new metals, and Mr. Scofield was sent to all parts of the country to gather material for laboratory work. He was connected with different chloronation and cyanide mills in Colorado with concentrators in connection, before coming to Arizona. Another reduction plant, similar in size to the present one, is now in course of construction by the Old Dominion Company, and as soon as this is completed the old concentrator will be thoroughly remodeled. In politics Mr. Scofield is an independent, and believes in favoring individual worth rather than blindly following organization. Fraternally he is a 32nd degree Mason, having taken the full degrees in both Scottisn and York Rite Masonry, and is a member of the Knights Templar. He was married in 1888 to Miss Fannie Goddard, of Fairfield, Iowa, and to their union one son, Ralph, has been born.
