George Huddleston (November 11, 1869 – February 29, 1960) was a U.S. Representative from Alabama, father of George Huddleston, Jr.
Huddleston was born on a farm near Lebanon, Tennessee, the son of Nancy Emeline (Sherrill) and Joseph Franklin Huddleston. Huddleston attended the common schools. He studied law at Cumberland School of Law at Cumberland University, Lebanon, Tennessee. He was admitted to the bar in 1891 and practiced in Birmingham, Alabama, until 1911, when he retired from practice.
During the Spanish–American War, Huddleston served as a private in the First Regiment, Alabama Volunteer Infantry.
Huddleston was elected as a Democrat to the Sixty-fourth and to the ten succeeding Congresses (March 4, 1915 – January 3, 1937), representing Alabama's 9th congressional district. He generally championed progressive laws and measures. He was an unsuccessful candidate for renomination in 1936.
