Edward Emmett Dougherty (March 18, 1876 - November 11, 1943) was an architect in the southeastern United States.

An Atlanta native, Dougherty graduated from the University of Georgia in 1895, then studied architecture at Cornell University and the Ecole des Beaux Arts.[1] He married Blanch Carson in 1907.

He partnered with Arthur Neal Robinson for a few years. He was also a partner in Dougherty & Gardner and in Dougherty, Wallace and Clemmons.[2]

During the second part of his career form 1916, Dougherty worked in Nashville, Tennessee completing projects for the Nashville, Chattanooga, and St. Louis Railroad and the Tennessee War Memorial (1922) in Nashville's Memorial Square. The American Institute of Architects awarded him the Gold Medal Award, its highest honor. Several buildings designed by Dougherty are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.[3]
