James Indus Farley (February 24, 1871 - June 16, 1948) was a three-term member of the United States Congress from Indiana during the New Deal. Born on a farm near Hamilton, Indiana, he attended Tri-State College in nearby Angola, and Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa. After four years of teaching school, he went to work for the Auburn Automobile Company and rose to become the company's president. In 1928, he entered politics as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention. He was elected to Congress in 1932 from the Fourth District, defeating incumbent Republican David Hogg. He was re-elected twice before losing to Republican George W. Gillie in 1938. He died in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, and is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, Auburn, Indiana.
