Henry Garland Dupré (July 28, 1873–February 21, 1924) was from 1910 to 1924 a U.S. Representative from Louisiana's 2nd congressional district, based about New Orleans, Louisiana.

Born in Opelousas in St. Landry Parish in South Louisiana, Dupré attended public schools and graduated in 1892 from Tulane University in New Orleans. He subsequently graduated from the Tulane University Law School and was admitted to the bar and commenced practice in New Orleans in 1895.

He served as assistant city attorney of New Orleans from 1900 to 1910. During that same period, he was the District 14 member of the Louisiana House of Representatives from Orleans Parish. He was House Speaker from 1908 to 1910.[1] In 1908, he chaired the Democratic State Convention.

Dupré was elected as a Democrat to the Sixty-first Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Samuel Louis Gilmore. He was reelected to the Sixty-second and to the six succeeding Congresses and served from November 8, 1910, until his death in Washington, D.C., on February 21, 1924. He was interred at the Catholic Cemetery in Opelousas.
