Frank Herbert John Baber (1871-8 August 1922) was a barrister and local politician.

Born in Islington, he was called to the bar at the Inner Temple in 1908.[1]

He involved himself in local politics, and was chosen as a Municipal Reform Party candidate to contest Newington West at the 1910 London County Council elections. He did not win the seat, however. At the next county council election in 1913 he was successful: winning a seat representing Tower Hamlets (Bow and Bromley).

He volunteered for service during the First World War, serving as a lieutenant in the Royal Army Ordnance Corps from 1915.[1] He resigned his commission on 8 January 1919 "on account of ill-health contracted on active service".[2]

He remained a member of the county council, whose term of office was extended due to the war, until the next elections in March 1919.

He died suddenly in 1922, aged 50, while visiting Plymouth.
