Victor Alfred Knox (January 13, 1899 – December 13, 1976) was a politician from the U.S. state of Michigan.

Knox was born on a farm in Chippewa County, Michigan, near Sault Ste. Marie. He attended the public schools and engaged in farming until 1943. He was the treasurer of Soo Township in 1923 and 1924, and Chippewa County supervisor, 1925-1931. Knox was member of the Michigan House of Representatives, 1937–1952, serving as the speaker pro tempore and Republican floor leader, 1943–1946, and as speaker, 1947-1952. He was also the manager of the Chippewa County Farm Bureau, 1943–1946 and engaged in the retail plumbing and heating business in Sault Ste. Marie in 1946. He served on the Council of State Government, the State Planning Commission, the State Crime Commission, and the Soo Locks Centennial Commission.

Knox was elected as a Republican from Michigan's 11th congressional district to the 83rd United States Congress and to the five succeeding Congresses, serving from January 3, 1953 to January 3, 1965. He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1964, losing in the general election to Democrat Raymond F. Clevenger.

Knox died in Petoskey, Michigan and is interred at Oaklawn Chapel Gardens, fifteen miles south of Sault Ste. Marie.
