Lyle H. Lanier (1903–1988) was an American author, professor, and university administrator. He is perhaps best known for his contribution to the volume I'll Take My Stand: The South and the Agrarian Tradition as a member of the Southern Agrarians.
From 1929 to 1938, he taught psychology at Vanderbilt University, where he became a Southern Agrarian and contributed to the volume I'll Take My Stand: The South and the Agrarian Tradition. In an essay entitled, 'Big Business in the Property State', he argued against the definition of a corporation as an individual. He was also in favour of collective bargaining. Indeed, he was in favour of the decentralization of power through widespread small ownership.
He died in 1988.
