John Bradley Winslow (October 4, 1851 – July 13, 1920) was an American jurist.

Winslow was born in Nunda, New York as the only son of Horatio G. Winslow and Emily Bradley Winslow.[1] He was a direct descendant of Kenelm Winslow, brother of Edward Winslow, a Mayflower colonist and a governor of Plymouth Colony.[1] He moved with his parents to Racine, Wisconsin in 1855.[1] Winslow graduated from Racine College in 1871 and received his law degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 1875.[1] He married Agnes Clancy on January 19, 1881.[1] He was elected a Wisconsin Circuit Court judge and in 1891 was appointed to the Wisconsin Supreme Court. From 1907 until his death, Winslow served as Chief Justice of the court.[2][3]

His former home in Madison, Wisconsin is located in what is now the Langdon Street Historic District.
