Frederick Albert Britten (November 18, 1871 – May 4, 1946) was a U.S. Representative from Illinois.


Born in Chicago, Illinois, Britten attended Heald's Business College, San Francisco, California. He was a construction worker and a business executive before his political career began. He served as member of the Chicago, Illinois, city council from 1908 to 1912. He served as member and chairman of the city civil service committee, Chicago, Illinois, 1909. Then he served as member of the executive committee of the American group of the Interparliamentary Union from 1923 to 1934. He also served as a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 1936.

Britten was elected as a Republican to the Sixty-third and to the ten succeeding Congresses (1913–1935). On April 5, 1917, he was one of the 50 representatives who voted against declaring war on Germany. He served as chairman of the Committee on Naval Affairs (Seventieth and Seventy-first Congress). He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection to the Seventy-fourth Congress in 1934.

Personal life

While serving in congress, Britten and his family took up residence at the Emma S. Fitzhugh House at 2253 R Street Northwest, Washington, D.C., and continued residing there even after retiring from politics in 1935. Britten then bought the house from Emma S. Fitzhugh on June 19, 1941 and eventually sold the house to Joaquín M. Elizalde, the first ambassador of the Philippines to the United States on October 14, 1946. The house then became the official residence of Philippine ambassadors to the United States.[1]


Britten died on May 4, 1946, in Bethesda, Maryland. He was interred in Abbey Mausoleum in Arlington County, Virginia. He was later reinterred in an unknown location.
