Charles Claud Husson (1847 in Mirecourt, Vosges – 1915) was an influential French Archetier / bow maker.

Charles Claude HUSSON was the son of Charles Claude Nicolas HUSSON, a bowmaker/ Archetier. He served his apprenticeship under his father, almost at the same time as Joseph Arthur Vigneron. In 1873, he entered Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume's workshop and stayed with him until Vuillaume's death in 1875.

According to experts, in 1875 he joined François Nicolas Voirin for some time and, around 1878, started working for GAND & BERNARDEL Frères. Around 1880 Husson established his own workshop in Paris at 14, rue du Faubourg Saint Denis.[1]
