Carson Drew is a fictional character in the popular Nancy Drew Mystery Stories series. He is Nancy's father, a widower, and is the most respected lawyer in River Heights (and is said to be one of the leading lawyers in the state he lives in). He is brown-haired and has blue eyes like his daughter. Nancy's Aunt Eloise is his sister. He enlists the help of his daughter for many of his cases. Carson Drew gets along well with Nancy throughout the series' earlier volumes, and admires her skills greatly, but in the cinematic releases and later books in the series, while he and Nancy are still very close and get along well for the most part, they argue more frequently.

Carson assists Nancy in many of her cases, giving guidance both professionally and as a father. He also makes good use of his professional connections and privileges to help Nancy solve her cases. He frequently leaves Nancy to her sleuthing while he travels on business. On numerous occasions, Nancy has had to save her father from danger, including several kidnappings. Mr. Drew is always proud of Nancy when she has solved, and finished a case.
