Jozua François ('Tom') Naudé (15 April 1889, Middelburg, Cape – 31 May 1969 Cape Town)[1] served as Acting State President of South Africa from 1967 to 1968.[2]

A National Party politician for many years, he served as Minister of Posts and Telegraphs from 1950 to 1954, as Minister of Health from 1954 to 1958, and as Minister of Finance from 1958 to 1961. He was then appointed President of the Senate, and in terms of the republican constitution he would be required ex officio to act as State President whenever that office was vacant. He was unexpectedly called upon to do this when Dr Eben Dönges, who was elected to succeed C.R. Swart as State President in 1967, suffered a stroke and fell into a coma before he could be inaugurated. Naudé was Acting State President for ten months, until Dönges died and Jim Fouché was inaugurated in his place.

Tom Naudé Technical High School in Polokwane (previously Pietersburg) was named after him.
