  • Frederick Van Nuys (* 16. April 1874 in Falmouth, Rush County, Indiana; † 25. Januar 1944 bei Vienna, Virginia) war ein US-amerikanischer Politiker (Demokratische Partei), der den Bundesstaat Indiana im US-Senat vertrat. Nachdem er zunächst die öffentlichen Schulen besucht hatte, machte Frederick Van Nuys 1898 seinen Abschluss am Earlham College in Richmond; zwei Jahre später folgte das juristische Examen an der Law School der Indiana University in Indianapolis. Ebenfalls noch 1900 folgte die Aufnahme in die Anwaltskammer, woraufhin er als Jurist in Shelbyville zu praktizieren begann. Wenig später zog er nach Anderson um. Von 1906 bis 1910 war Van Nuys Staatsanwalt im Madison County. Sein erstes politisches Amt bekleidete er von 1913 bis 1916 als Mitglied des Senats von Indiana; 1915 war er Präsident pro tempore der Parlamentskammer. Ab 1916 lebte er dann in Indianapolis. Von 1920 bis 1922 amtierte er als Bundesstaatsanwalt für den Gerichtsdistrikt von Indiana. Schließlich wurde Frederick Van Nuys 1932 zum US-Senator gewählt, wobei er den langjährigen republikanischen Amtsinhaber James Eli Watson besiegte. Er nahm sein Mandat ab dem 4. März 1933 wahr und wurde nach sechs Jahren im Amt bestätigt. Ab 1941 war er Vorsitzender des Justizausschusses. Noch vor Ablauf seiner zweiten Amtszeit starb Van Nuys im Januar 1944 auf einer Farm in Virginia. (de)

He moved to Indianapolis in 1916 and continued the practice of law; he was United States attorney for the district of Indiana from 1920 to 1922. Frederick Van Nuys was elected as a Democrat to the U.S. Senate in 1932, soundly defeating longtime incumbent James Eli Watson. He was narrowly reelected in 1938, serving from March 4, 1933, until his death on a farm near Vienna, Virginia in 1944. While in the Senate he was chairman of the Committee on Expenditures in Executive Departments (76th Congress) and a member of the Committee on the Judiciary (77th and 78th Congresses). In 1943 a confidential analysis by Isaiah Berlin of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for the British Foreign Office stated of Van Nuys: his voting record is a very mixed one; in 1939 he was one of the members of the committee which voted to postpone consideration of the Neutrality Act in June of that year; in October he voted for a revision but not for repeal. Like George and Gillette, he is one of the Senators whom the 1938 purge failed to eliminate, and his feeling towards the President is, therefore, somewhat cool. He voted for Lend-Lease in common with most Democrats, against reciprocal trade agreements, and occasionally votes with the Farm Bloc. A man of very uncertain views tinged with isolationism and liable, on the whole, to vote with the Conservatives. Van Nuys was buried in East Maplewood Cemetery, Anderson, Indiana. Asked how to say his name, he told The Literary Digest it was van-NIECE. (Charles Earle Funk, What's the Name, Please?, Funk & Wagnalls, 1936.) (en)
