John William King (October 10, 1918 – August 9, 1996) was an American lawyer, jurist, and Democratic politician from Manchester, New Hampshire. He received his law degree from Columbia Law School in 1943. He practiced law in Manchester and served in the New Hampshire House of Representatives. After his three terms as Governor of New Hampshire, he served on the New Hampshire Supreme Court from 1979, and as its Chief Justice from 1981 until 1986.
During his attacks of Senator Eugene J. McCarthy, Mr. Johnson's challenger in the New Hampshire primary, Mr. King questioned Senator McCarthy's national loyalty and also warned that a strong vote for "the appeaser," would be "greeted with cheers in Hanoi."
