John Edgar Chenoweth (August 17, 1897 – January 2, 1986) was a Republican politician from the U.S. state of Colorado, serving as a member of the United States House of Representatives and as a state judge.

Early life

Chenoweth's parents were Thomas Beaseman Chenoweth and Esther Rebecca Chenoweth (née Shamberger).[citation needed] Chenoweth was born in Trinidad, Colorado, and attended the University of Colorado at Boulder.[2] From 1916–1925, he worked on railroads and as a trader. In 1925, he was admitted to the bar and began to practice as a lawyer.[2]

Career

From 1929-33, he served as assistant district attorney; following this, he worked as a county judge for Las Animas County, serving until 1941. In 1940, he was elected as a Republican to the U.S. House, and he was re-elected three times, serving until he was defeated in the 1948 election.[2]

Representative Chenoweth and other members of the House Committee on Science and Astronautics visit the Marshall Space Flight Center on March 9, 1962 to gather first-hand information of the nation's space exploration program.

In 1950, however, he won back his old seat, and served there until he was again defeated in the 1964 elections. After this, he returned to Trinidad, Colorado, and once again took up law. He lived there until his death.[2]

Personal life

He married Ruth Olivia Crews on December 25, 1919.[citation needed] The couple had five children: William Beaseman Chenoweth, Wanda Elizabeth Chenoweth, John Edgar Chenoweth, James Richard Chenoweth, and Ruth Anne Chenoweth.[citation needed]
