Charles Samuel McDowell Jr. (October 17, 1871 – May 22, 1943) was the 10th Lieutenant Governor of Alabama from 1923 to 1927, and was the interim Governor of Alabama between July 10 and July 11, 1924, when Governor William W. Brandon was out-of-state for 21 days. The state constitution requires that, if the governor is out of the state for 20 days, that the lieutenant governor acts as governor until he returns.
