Professor John James Craik-Henderson (21 December 1890 – 3 December 1971) was a British Conservative Party politician.

Henderson was elected to the House of Commons at a by-election in March 1940, as Member of Parliament (MP) for Leeds North East.[citation needed]

He served in Parliament for the rest of World War II, and was replaced by the 1945 general election by Alice Bacon of the Labour Party. He took 97.1% of the vote in 1940, opposed only by the British Union of Fascists, but took only 37.5% in 1945. This is one of the biggest drops in British electoral history.[citation needed]
