Charles Noel Crosby (September 29, 1876 – January 26, 1951) was a Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania and an American football coach in the early years of the sport.

Early life

Charles N. Crosby was born in a farming settlement named Cherry Valley, near Andover, Ohio. He attended the New Lyme Institute and Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania. He attended Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, where he was a member for the football team, graduating in 1897.[1] He moved to Linesville, Pennsylvania, in 1901, engaging in the manufacture of silos and in the lumber business. He became engaged in agricultural pursuits in 1914. He was a member of the Linesville and Meadville Boards of Education from 1920 to 1929, and served as president of the Meadville Chamber of Commerce from 1922 to 1924.[2]

Political career

Crosby was elected as a Democrat to the Seventy-third, Seventy-fourth, and Seventy-fifth Congresses representing Pennsylvania's 29th congressional district. He was an unsuccessful candidate for renomination in 1938. He moved to Montgomery County, Maryland, in 1940 and operated a large dairy farm near Clarksburg, Maryland.

He was one of the 53 supporters in Congress along with Fiorello La Guardia in favor of a United States Constitutional amendment giving congressional power to overturn United States Supreme Court decisions.[3]

Coaching career

While at Allegheny, Crosby was the head coach of the Allegheny Gators football team. He held that position for the 1897 season and is the first coach on record for the program. His coaching record at Allegheny was 0–4.[4]
