John David Herbert (born September 18, 1930)[1] is an American lawyer who served two terms as Ohio State Treasurer from 1963 to 1971.

A Republican, he was the son of Thomas J. Herbert, who was Governor of Ohio from 1947 to 1949.

In 1970, Herbert won the Republican nomination for Ohio Attorney General, but lost because of his connections to the "Crofters" scandal in which Republicans were accused of steering state investments to campaign contributors. The scandal brought down nearly the entire Republican ticket in 1970 and helped to elect John J. Gilligan to a single term as governor.

Herbert is a resident of Cincinnati and is corporate counsel to the Ace Doran Hauling and Rigging Company.
