Henry Carwithen McQuillan (30 September 1906 – 28 April 1979) was a Progressive Conservative party member of the Canadian House of Commons. Born in Courtenay, British Columbia, he was a contractor and logger by career.

He made an unsuccessful attempt to defeat Liberal incumbent Thomas Speakman Barnett at the Comox—Alberni riding in the 1957 federal election. McQuillan successed in the 1958 election, serving in the 24th Parliament before Barnett retook the riding in the 1962 election.
