Geoffrey Austin Gresham (1 November 1924–24 July 2009[1]) was a British pathologist and writer of A Colour Atlas of Forensic Pathology, a seminal book on the subject.

He was educated at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge and King's College London where he was awarded the Jelf Medal.[2]

Austin Gresham was emeritus professor of morbid anatomy and histopathology at Jesus College, Cambridge.

His 1975 handbook, A Colour Atlas of Forensic Pathology, was compiled for trainee pathologists and, according to the author, "designed to fit into a jacket pocket so that it could be taken into the field".
