Joseph Rowan (September 8, 1870 – August 3, 1930) was a U.S. Representative from New York.


Joseph Charles Rowan was born in New York City on September 8, 1870. He attended the public schools and graduated from Columbia Law School in 1891.[1] He was admitted to the bar in 1892 and practiced in New York City. He was also involved in banking and other businesses, including serving as a trustee of the West Side Savings Bank.[2] In 1905, Rowan married Cora Cook, the daughter of Dr. Stephen Cook, the chief surgeon of the New York City Police Department.[3]

A Democrat allied with Tammany Hall,[4] in 1920 Rowan ran successfully for a seat in the U.S. House, defeating incumbent Walter M. Chandler. He served in the 66th United States Congress, March 4, 1919 – March 4, 1921. He was not a candidate for renomination in 1920, and resumed the practice of law.

He died in New York City on August 3, 1930.[5] Rowan was interred in Woodlawn Cemetery.[6]
