Joaquín Galvez Naranjo (died c. 1976 or 1977) was a philatelist who in 1965 was awarded the Crawford Medal by the Royal Philatelic Society London for his work Los primeros sellos de Chile 1853 a 1867.[1] At the time it was published, this book was the first significant work on the philately of Chile since 1919.[2] The book was reprinted by Postilion Publications in the 1990s with an errata sheet and a prologue by Álvaro Bonilla Lara.

At the España 75 stamp exhibition, Galvez Naranjo won the Grand Prix d'Honneur for his entry "Chile".[3]

His collection was sold by Corinphila in Switzerland in 1979.
