Hugh Miller Farquharson (November 4, 1911[1] – March 27, 1985) was a Canadian ice hockey player who competed in the 1936 Winter Olympics.

Although Farquharson was a member of the Royal Montreal Hockey Club, the Canadian ice hockey selection committee for the 1936 Winter Olympics chose to add him (along with teammates David Neville and Ralph St. Germain) to join the Port Arthur Bearcats to represent Canada in ice hockey at the 1936 Winter Olympics. Farquharson was Team Canada's leading scorer with 11 goals to help Canada win the silver Olympic medal.[2]

In 1987 he was inducted into the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame as a member of that Olympic team, and he was made a member of the McGill Sports Hall of Fame in 2002.
