John B. Kendrick (September 6, 1857ndash November 3, 1933) was an American politician who served as a United States Senator from Wyoming.

Kendrick was born near Rusk, Texas, where he attended the public schools, and then moved to Wyoming in 1879 and settled on a ranch near Sheridan, where he raised cattle.

He was a member of the State senate from 1910 to 1914 and was an unsuccessful candidate for election to the United States Senate in 1913. He then served as Governor of Wyoming from 1915 until he resigned in 1917, having been elected as a Democrat to the United States Senate in 1916. Kendrick was reelected to the Senate in 1922 and 1928 and served from March 4, 1917, until his death at Sheridan, Wyoming, in 1933. He had served as chairman of the Committee on Canadian Relations (Sixty-fifth Congress) and member of the Committee on Public Lands and Surveys (Seventy-third Congress). He is interred in Mount Hope Cemetery in Sheridan, Wyoming.
