John Joseph Mitchell (May 9, 1873 - September 13, 1925) was a lawyer and U.S. Representative from Massachusetts.


Mitchell was born in Marlborough, Massachusetts, on May 9, 1873. He attended public schools, Boston College, and the Albany Law School. Mitchell was admitted to the bar and commenced practice in Marlborough. He was elected a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, and served in the Massachusetts State Senate.

Mitchell was elected as a Democrat to the Sixty-first Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Charles Q. Tirrell, serving from November 8, 1910, to March 3, 1911. He unsuccessfully ran for reelection in 1910 to the Sixty-second Congress, but was elected to the Sixty-third Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of John W. Weeks and served from April 15, 1913 to March 3, 1915. He was again an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1914 to the Sixty-fourth Congress.

Mitchell served as United States Marshal for Massachusetts during World War I. He was a collector of internal revenue for the district of Massachusetts between 1919 and 1921, and practiced as an attorney in Boston until his death in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston on September 13, 1925. He was interred in Immaculate Conception Cemetery in Marlborough.
