Ernest Wilfred April (born 15 January 1915 in Salem, Massachusetts, United States - died 27 July 2004 ) was a professional anatomist at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons who gained prominence for his controversial defense of the use of Nazi medical drawings in anatomy textbooks. He was best known for championing Pernkopff Anatomy, a volume composed by leading Austrian Nazi Eduard Pernkoff. April described the atlas as "a phenomenal book, very complete and thorough and authoritative."
In addition to running the human anatomy program at Columbia University, April served for many years as a Republican and Conservative councilman in Rutherford, New Jersey. April was a graduate of Tufts University.
