Hector Lamond (31 October 1865 – 26 April 1947) was an Australian politician.
Lamond was born at Broughton Creek, near Berry, New South Wales and educated at public schools. He was apprenticed as a printer to the Carcoar Chronicle when he was 14 and was its editor at 25. He was involved in the establishment of the Australian Labor Party between 1895 and 1900. In 1902, he married Gwynetha, the daughter of Australian Workers' Union president, William Spence. From 1905 to 1916, he was editor and manager of the Australian Workers' Union's The Australian Worker.
Lamond unsuccessfully contested the Australian House of Representatives seat of Lang for Labor at the 1913 and 1914 elections. During World War I, he came to be opposed to labor radicalism, and in particular to the Industrial Workers of the World, and became a strong supporter of Billy Hughes. As a supporter of conscription, he was obliged to resign from the Australian Worker. He won the seat of Illawarra as a Nationalist at the 1917 election and was appointed assistant minister for repatriation in December 1921. The seat of Illawarra was abolished before the 1922 election and he stood unsuccessfully for Barton.
