John James Flynt, Jr.

John James Flynt, Jr. (November 8, 1914 – June 24, 2007) was a United States Representative from Georgia. Born in Griffin, Georgia, he attended the public schools and Georgia Military Academy (now the Woodward Academy). He later attended the University of Georgia at Athens where he was a member of the Phi Kappa Literary Society and received an A.B. in 1936. He served in the United States Army from 1936-1937 and again in 1941 to 1945; he was also a member of the United States Army Reserve.

Flynt attended Emory University Law School in 1937 and 1938 and graduated from The George Washington University Law School in 1940. He was a lawyer in private practice and was assistant United States attorney for northern district of Georgia from 1939 to 1941 and again in 1945 and 1946. He was a member of the Georgia House of Representatives in 1947-1948, and was solicitor general for Griffin Judicial Circuit from 1949 to 1954. In 1952-1954, he was president of the Georgia Bar Association. Flynt was a delegate to the Georgia State Democratic conventions in 1946, 1950, 1954, 1958, 1962, and 1966, and was a delegate to the Democratic National Conventions of 1960 and 1968.

Flynt was elected as a Democrat to the Eighty-third Congress by special election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Representative A. Sidney Camp, and at the same time was elected to the Eighty-fourth Congress. He was reelected to the eleven succeeding Congresses, serving from November 2, 1954 to January 3, 1979.

He was not a candidate for reelection to the Ninety-sixth Congress in 1978 and resumed the practice of law and farming operations. He engaged in banking and real estate, and lived in Griffin, Georgia until his death in 2007.
