John Neuhaus (1904-1958) was an IWW folklorist.

"John Neuhaus was as intrigued by the background of source melodies as by the Wobbly parodies themselves. Tasking himself with a search for old sheet music, song folios, pocket songsters, and hymnals, he patiently reconstructed individual song histories. He applied his considerable machinist's skill to his 'hobby'."—Archie Green, David Roediger, Franklin Rosemont, and Salvatore Salerno, The Big Red Songbook
