Victor L'Episcopo Anfuso (March 10, 1905 – December 28, 1966) was a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives from New York.



Born in Gagliano Castelferrato, Sicily, the son of Salvatore Anfuso and Marianina Anfuso, he immigrated to the United States in 1914. He attended Columbia University and graduated from Brooklyn Law School in 1927. He married Frances Stallone on June 15, 1930.


Anfuso served in the Office of Strategic Services in the Mediterranean Theatre of World War II from 1943 until 1945. He was elected to Congress in 1950 and served from January 3, 1951 until January 3, 1953. He was city magistrate of Brooklyn from February 1954 until his resignation in July 1954, when he was elected to Congress again and served from January 3, 1955 until January 3, 1963.

Elected to the New York Supreme Court in 1962, Anfuso served in that capacity until his death.


Anfuso suffered a heart attack during a meeting at the Warwick Hotel, and died soon after in Manhattan, New York, on December 28, 1966 (age 61 years, 293 days). He is interred at St. John Cemetery, Middle Village, Queens, New York.
