Norman W. Johnson (born November 12, 1930) is a mathematician, previously at Wheaton College, Norton, Massachusetts. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto in 1966 with a dissertation title of The Theory of Uniform Polytopes and Honeycombs under the supervision of H. S. M. Coxeter.
In his 1966 doctoral thesis Johnson discovered three uniform antiprism-like star polytopes named the Johnson antiprisms. Their bases are the three ditrigonal polyhedra – the small ditrigonal icosidodecahedron, ditrigonal dodecadodecahedron and the great ditrigonal icosidodecahedron.
