Stanley Hay Umphray Bowie FRS (born 24 March 1917, in Bixter, Shetland - died 2008) was a Scottish geologist. He was considered a "world authority on uranium geology and a leader in the field of geochemistry and mineralogy". He developed methods and tools to identify opaque minerals using micro-indentation hardness and optical reflectance. The mineral bowieite was so named in recognition of his work on identification of opaque minerals.
