Carl Richard Chindblom (December 21, 1870 – September 12, 1956) was a U.S. Representative from Illinois.[1]


Born in Chicago, Illinois to Swedish immigrant parents,[2] Chindblom attended public schools.

He was a teacher at Martin Luther College in Chicago 1893–1896.[3]

He was admitted to the bar in 1900 and commenced the practice of law in Chicago, Illinois. He served as delegate to the Republican State conventions in 1904, 1908, 1912, and 1916. He was attorney for the Illinois State Board of Health in 1905 and 1906. He served as member of the Cook County Board of Commissioners 1906–1910. He was county attorney of Cook County 1912–1914. He served as master in chancery of the circuit court of Cook County 1916–1918.[4]

Chindblom was elected as a Republican to the Sixty-sixth and to the six succeeding Congresses (March 4, 1919 – March 3, 1933).[5]

He was an unsuccessful candidate for renomination in 1932. He resumed the practice of law in Chicago, Illinois, until his death.
