William "Bill" Gunn (4 March 1932 – 23 March 1991)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played with South Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL) during the 1950s.

A half-forward flanker, Gunn finished equal fifth in the 1958 Brownlow Medal and was a regular Victorian interstate representative. He captained South Melbourne for the 1955 VFL season, topping their goal-kicking the following season with 28 goals.

Gunn is the grandfather of former Western Bulldogs player and Greater Western Sydney captain Callan Ward.[2]
