Warren Babcock, Jr. (September 15, 1866 – June 3, 1913) was a Michigan politician and educator.
He was born in Ypsilanti, Michigan, son of Warren Babcock, a farmer and Western saloon keeper who also served as postmaster of Milan, Michigan. He married Gertrude Hanson on November 16, 1892, and they had a daughter, also named Gertrude.
He was a professor of mathematics at Michigan Agricultural College (now Michigan State University), and lived in the small community then forming around it. In 1907, that community was incorporated as the city of East Lansing, Michigan. In 1908, he became the new city's second mayor, and served a one-year term.
As one of the few Democrats in the then-overwhelmingly Republican community, he was appointed East Lansing postmaster at the beginning of Woodrow Wilson's presidential administration in 1913. Similarly, his father had been appointed postmaster in Milan by the previous Democratic president, Grover Cleveland.
