Van Vechten Veeder (July 4, 1867 – December 4, 1942) was a United States federal judge.

Born in Schenectady, New York, Veeder received an education at Columbia University and the University of Virginia and read law in 1890. He worked in private practice in Chicago until 1900, and subsequently in New York City, until 1911.

On January 13, 1911, Veeder was nominated by President William Howard Taft to a new seat on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York created by 36 Stat. 838. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on January 26, 1911, and received his commission the same day. Veeder service was terminated on December 31, 1917, due to resignation.

He resumed work in private practice until 1942, the year of his death. His work included serving as Counsel to the West Chicago Street R.R. Company, and as Special Master for the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 1935.[1]

He died at 775 Park Ave, in New York, New York.
