Charles William Clinton (1838–1910) was an American architect. From 1894 until his death, Clinton was a partner of the prominent firm of Clinton and Russell, but from 1858 through 1894 he conducted his own significant career.

Clinton was born and raised in New York, and received his formal architectural training in the office of Richard Upjohn. He left Upjohn in 1858 to begin a private practice, although he was associated with Edward Tuckerman Potter, and in the 1870s Clinton is twice credited alongside James W. Pirsson as collaborators.

Clinton's most prominent solo commission is the privately funded and unusually ornate 1880 Seventh Regiment Armory on Park Avenue in New York City; the architect himself was a member of the Seventh Regiment's Company K.[1]
