Samuel Austin Kendall (November 1, 1859 – January 8, 1933) was a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania.


Samuel A. Kendall was born in Greenville Township, Pennsylvania. He attended the public schools and was a student for some time at Valparaiso, Indiana, and at Mount Union College in Alliance, Ohio. He taught school from 1876 to 1890 and served five years as superintendent of the public schools of Jefferson, Iowa. He returned to Somerset County, Pennsylvania, in 1890 and engaged in the lumber business and the mining of coal. He was vice president of the Kendall Lumber Co. of Pittsburgh, and president of the Preston Railroad Co. He served as member of the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives from 1899 to 1903.

Kendall was elected as a Republican to the Sixty-sixth and to the six succeeding Congresses and served until his death. He had been unsuccessful for reelection in 1932, and died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in the House Office Building in Washington, D.C., before his successor J. Buell Snyder was sworn in.[1] Interment in Hochstetler Cemetery, Greenville Township, Somerset County, Pennsylvania.
