George Arnold (June 24, 1834 in New York City – November 9, 1865 in Monmouth County, New Jersey) was an author and poet. After briefly attempting a career as a portrait painter, he turned to writing and became a regular contributor to Vanity Fair and The Leader[disambiguation needed]. A contemporary of Walt Whitman, Arnold was likewise a patron of Pfaff's beer cellar.

His most enduring work is a humorous piece, The Jolly Old Pedagogue.
