Edward Tuck (August 24, 1842 – April 30, 1938) was an American banker and philanthropist. Born in Exeter, New Hampshire to political figure Amos Tuck, he was educated at Dartmouth College. Tuck donated $500,000 to Dartmouth to endow the Amos Tuck School of Administration and Finance, in memory of his father. His gifts to Dartmouth were estimated at $6 million.
Tuck became a member of the banking firm Munroe & Co. in 1871. From 1890, he lived in France, first as a diplomat, then as an expatriate, where he donated an art collection valued at $5 million, and funds for hospitals and other institutions.
Other members of the Tuck family include Edward Hallam Tuck (1927–2002) who was awarded the prestigious Legion of Honor, and was President of the French American Foundation, and the actress Jessica Tuck.
In Paris, Avenue Edward Tuck runs a short distance between the Petite Palais and the Place de la Concorde, parallel to the Avenue des Champs Élysées.
