Henry Louis Scott (born November 16, 1889, date of death unknown) was an American long-distance runner who competed in the 1912 Summer Olympics. He was part of the American team which won the gold medal in the 3000 m team event. He also competed in the final of the 5000 m, but his place is unknown.
