Frank William Land (born c. 1916) was a populariser of mathematics and a professor of mathematics at Hull University.

He was lecturer at the College of St Mark and St John ('Marjohn') in Chelsea with Cyril Bibby, whom he later followed to Hull where he worked with Bill Cockcroft.

Marcus du Sautoy describes Land's book The Language of Mathematics as seminal in his intellectual development.[1]

One of his children is the neurobiologist Professor Michael F. Land.
