Gherardi Davis (October 15, 1858 – March 9, 1941) was an American lawyer, book author and politician from New York.
He was born on October 15, 1858 in San Francisco, California, the son of George Henry Davis (1824–1897) and Clara Jane (Gherardi) Davis (1827–1897). In 1868, the family went to Europe, and Gherardi attended school in Germany and college in France. In 1879, he returned to the United States, and studied law, first in Washington, D.C., and then in New York City. He was admitted to the bar, and practiced law in New York City. On April 7, 1894, he married Alice King (1860–1920), daughter of State Senator John A. King. Gherardi and Alice Davis published several works on military standards.
Governor of Massachusetts John Davis (1787–1854) was his grandfather; Rear Admiral Bancroft Gherardi (1832–1903) was his uncle; and electrical engineer Bancroft Gherardi, Jr. (1873–1941) was his first cousin.
