Calvin Tibbetts Chamberlain (December 5, 1795 in Mount Vernon, then in Lincoln County, Massachusetts, now in Kennebec County, Maine – June 27, 1878 in Cuba, Allegany County, New York) was an American politician from New York.
He was the son of Benjamin Chamberlain (1757–1847) and Tryphena (née Tibbetts, widowed Kenney) Chamberlain. In 1816, he removed to a place then located in the Town of Friendship, about two miles from a settlement which was later incorporated as the Village of Cuba, in Allegany County. The next year, he established a saw mill there. He married Betsey Moore (d. 1845). In 1835, he opened a public house and general store, and was appointed Postmaster of Cuba.
