Francis Oscar Lindquist (September 27, 1869 – September 25, 1924) was a politician from the U.S. state of Michigan.

Lindquist was born in Marinette, Wisconsin on September 27, 1869[1] to a Norwegian-born mother and a Swedish-born father[2] and attended the common schools. He moved to Greenville, Michigan, in 1904 and engaged in the mail-order clothing and manufacturing business.[1] He moved to Grand Rapids in 1915 and became president of the Canada Mills Co., of New York and Michigan.

Lindquist was elected as a Republican from Michigan's 11th congressional district to the 63rd United States Congress, serving from March 4, 1913 to March 3, 1915. He won the election in a landslide, using mail-order tactics to canvass voters.[3] He was not a candidate for renomination in 1914 and resumed the mail-order business in Grand Rapids. After the First World War, he returned to Greenville and supervised a correspondence-school course for sales people. In 1922, he lost to Bird J. Vincent in the Republican primary election for U.S. Representative in Michigan's 8th congressional district.
