Roy Owen West (October 27, 1868 - November 29, 1958) a Chicagoan and graduate of DePauw University in 1890, was U.S. Secretary of the Interior from 1928 until 1929, serving under Calvin Coolidge.

West was born 1868 in Georgetown, Illinois. He graduated from De Pauw University and was admitted to the Illinois bar in 1890. He served as assistant attorney for Cook County and then as city attorney for Chicago. In 1898, he was elected to the Chicago Board of Review. While serving in these posts, he formed a close political alliance with future Illinois Governor Charles S. Deneen. West served as secretary to the G.O.P National Committee from 1924 to 1928.

After his cabinet service, West returned to Illinois. He was a member of the National Methodist Board of Education from 1936 to 1940. During World War II, West worked as a federal hearing officer for conscientious objector cases.

He died November 29, 1958, and is buried in Rosehill Cemetery in Chicago.

The library at DePauw University is named for Mr. West.
