John R. Clancy

John Richard Clancy (March 8, 1859 – April 21, 1932) was a U.S. Representative from New York.

Born in Syracuse, New York, Clancy attended the public schools. He engaged in the manufacture of theatrical rigging in 1885, and later of hardware specialties. He served as vice president of the board of trustees of the New York State College of Forestry at Syracuse University, was member of the Central New York State Park Commission, and was an executive of several banks.

Clancy was elected as a Democrat to the Sixty-third Congress (March 4, 1913 – March 3, 1915). An unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1914 to the Sixty-fourth Congress, he resumed his interests in manufacturing in Syracuse, New York.

During the First World War he served on the Governor's committee of public safety, on the committee on armories of the State, and had charge of stampings and forgings for five central New York counties under the War Production Board.

He died in Syracuse, New York, April 21, 1932, and was interred in St. Agnes Cemetery.
