Hyde Clarke (14 December 1815 – 1 March 1895) was an English engineer, philologist and author. He edited the Railway Register from 1845 to 1847 and founded the London and County Bank. He was a member of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. He was expelled from the Anthropological Society of London on 22 August 1868[1] in the wake of public allegations he had made concerning (chiefly) the mismanagement of accounts of that body.
