Fred Herbert Brown (April 12, 1879 – February 3, 1955) was an American lawyer and Democratic politician from Somersworth, New Hampshire. He served as mayor of Somersworth and as United States Attorney for New Hampshire before his term as Governor of New Hampshire from 1923 to 1925,[1] and later served in the United States Senate.[2]

Brown was elected to the Senate by narrowly defeating Republican incumbent Roosevelt landslide of 1932. But he lost his bid for re-election in 1938.

He served as Comptroller General of the United States from 1939 to 1940.[3] He was appointed to a 15-year term, as are all Comptrollers General, but only served one year due to illness.

He played parts of two seasons in Major League Baseball for the Boston Beaneaters in 1901 and 1902. He played nine games over the course of those two seasons, seven in the outfield, going 4-for-20 at the plate and not making an error in 10 chances in the field.[4]
