Meredith Nicholson (9 December 1866-December 1947) was a best-selling Indiana author, and later a politician.

He initially worked for Newspapers, first for one year (1884) at the Indianapolis Sentinal, and twelve years (1885-1897) at the Indianapolis News.

He wrote Short Flights in 1891, and continued to publish extensively, both poetry and prose until 1928. Three of his books were yearly national best sellers:

  • The House of a Thousand Candles (#4 in 1906)
  • The Port of Missing Men (#3 in 1907)
  • A Hoosier Chronicle (#5 in 1912)

Nicholson entered Democratic party politics in 1928. He served for two years as a city councilman in Indianapolis, and eventually became important within the Democratic party. He served as Ambasador to Paraguay (1933-34), Venezuela (1935-1938) and Nicaragua (1938-1941)
