Edmond Huet (1827-1906) was a director of the Paris city council's works department at the end of the 19th century. A graduate of École polytechnique, he proposed several schemes for the introduction of a mass rapid transit system for the city and eventually worked closely with Fulgence Bienvenüe on the scheme to build the Paris Metro, which opened in 1900.[1]

Huet became the eleventh president (after Henry Louis Le Châtelier) of the Société d'encouragement pour l'industrie nationale in 1905 and was succeeded by Édouard Gruner in 1907.
