Sir Max Waechter (3 October 1837 - 1924) was a businessman, art collector, philanthropist and advocate of a federal Europe.
Waechter was born in Stettin, then in Germany. He went to England in 1859 and was naturalised in 1865.
He lived in Terrace House on Richmond Hill, and owned Glover's Island which he donated to the Borough of Richmond in 1900. He helped preserve the view from Richmond across the river by preventing destructive development.
