Nathan Woodworth Post (August 3, 1881 – May 30, 1938) was the 8th and 10th Governor of American Samoa. He graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1904, and commanded the USS Detroit (CL-8) and the Naval Recruiting Station in Omaha, Nebraska. He served two terms as governor: from March 14 to July 14, 1913 and from October 2 to December 16, 1914. He is the first American Samoan governor to serve to two non-consecutive terms.
As an Ensign, Post served on the USS Louisiana (BB-19). Post served as the personnel officer of the 12th Naval District. In 1910, he was in charge of the Naval Recruiting Station in Omaha, Nebraska. He was made a Commander in 1916. In 1922 he was placed in command of the USS Farragut (DD-300) in San Diego, CA. In 1931, he was placed in command of the USS Detroit (CL-8).
Post relieved William Michael Crose of the governorship on March 14, 1913, serving until July 14 of the same year. He served a second term from October 2 to December 16, 1914. This made him the first Governor of American Samoa to serve exactly two non-consecutive terms; the only other ever to do so was Gatewood Lincoln.
