Schuyler Otis Bland (May 4, 1872 – February 16, 1950) was a United States Representative from Virginia. Born near Gloucester, Virginia, he attended the Gloucester Academy and the College of William and Mary. He was a teacher and a lawyer in private practice, and was elected as a Democrat to the Sixty-fifth Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Representative William A. Jones. He was reelected to the Sixty-sixth and to the fifteen succeeding Congresses, serving from July 2, 1918 to February 16, 1950. While in the House, he was chair of the Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries (Seventy-third through Seventy-ninth Congresses and Eighty-first Congress). The United States Merchant Marine Academy Library is named in his honor. Bland died in Bethesda, Maryland and was interred in Greenlawn Cemetery, Newport News, Virginia.
