William Joseph Hynes, Congressman from Arkansas.

William Joseph Hynes (March 31, 1843 – April 2, 1915) was a U.S. Representative from Arkansas.

He was born in Kilkee, County Clare, Ireland on March 31, 1843. His family immigrated to the United States in 1854, following the death of his father, and settled in Springfield, Massachusetts. Hynes attended the public schools of Springfield and became a printer after completing an apprenticeship at the Springfield Republican newspaper.

His mother died in 1864 and Hynes relocated to Nashville, Tennessee to study law with attorney John O'Neill. He attended Columbian University's law school (now George Washington University Law School) in Washington, D.C. while working as a newspaper reporter and secretary for Benjamin F. Rice, a United States Senator from Arkansas. He graduated in 1870, and his work for Rice inspired him to move to Arkansas. He was admitted to the bar and commenced practice in Little Rock.

Hynes had been a Democrat, but Rice was a Republican, and Hynes became involved in the Liberal Republican movement of the 1870s. He was elected as a Liberal Republican to the 43rd Congress (March 4, 1873 – March 3, 1875). He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1874 to the 44th Congress.

He moved to Chicago in 1876 and resumed the practice of law. He returned to the Democratic Party and was active in the Irish Home Rule movement.

He retired from the practice of law in 1910 and moved to Los Angeles, California, where he remained until his death, April 2, 1915. He was interred in Calvary Cemetery, vault H.
