Herman H. Winter (circa 1805 – ?) was an American farmer from Watertown, Wisconsin who spent one term as a "Democratic Republican" member of the Wisconsin State Assembly from Jefferson County.

Background[edit]

As of 1860, Winter described himself as a native of Bremen; he was a farmer, aged 55 and had been in Wisconsin for 16 years.

Winter was elected in 1859 for the 4th Jefferson County Assembly district (the Towns of Ashippun, Lebanon, Ixonia and Watertown), succeeding Democrat Ferdinand Wagner.

He was appointed to the standing committee on charitable and religious institutions.[1] He was succeeded by Democrat Samuel Hays.
