William Wolfe Cohen (September 6, 1874 – October 12, 1940) was a U.S. Representative from New York.


Born in Brooklyn, New York to Russian-born Bernard Cohen and German-born Frederica (née Cronocher),[2][3] Cohen attended public schools. He became associated with his father in the shoe manufacturing business until 1903, when he engaged in the banking and brokerage business. Cohen was a member of the New York Stock Exchange and director of the New York Cotton Exchange. He served as vice chairman of the Public Schools Athletic League, and was an honorary deputy chief of the New York City Fire Department.

Cohen was elected as a Democrat to the Seventieth Congress (March 4, 1927 – March 3, 1929). He was not a candidate for renomination in 1928.

He resumed his former business pursuits in New York City until his death there on October 12, 1940. In keeping with his Jewish faith, Cohen was interred in Mount Neboh Cemetery, Brooklyn, New York.[4]
