Charles F. Van de Water

Charles F. Van de Water (October 12, 1872 – November 20, 1920) was a Republican politician in California.[1] He was born in Hobart, New York. He won a seat to the United States House of Representatives from California's 9th congressional district in the 1920 election by defeating the Prohibition party incumbent, Charles H. Randall.

Van de Water died in a car crash[2] before assuming office, and Republican Walter F. Lineberger later won a special election to his seat.
