Frank Dale (November 26, 1849 – February 10, 1930) was the Chief Justice of the Territorial Supreme Court of Oklahoma Territory from 1893 until 1898. Born in Somonauk, Illinois, he pioneered both in Kansas and Oklahoma, becoming a well-known attorney in both states. Both the towns of Andale, Kansas, and Dale, Oklahoma, are named for him. Although originally a Republican, sometime after moving to Oklahoma, he became a Democrat.
During World War II, the US Merchant marine had a ship “SS Frank Dale”. She sailed under charter to the North Atlantic & Gulf Steamship Company.
