Philip Henry Stoll (November 5, 1874 – October 29, 1958) was a U.S. Representative from South Carolina.

Born in Little Rock, Marion (now Dillon) County, South Carolina, Stoll attended the public schools.

He graduated from Wofford College, Spartanburg, South Carolina, in 1897. He was a teacher in the public schools 1897–1901. He studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1901. He practiced in Kingstree, South Carolina.

He served as member of the State house of representatives 1905–1906 and then as solicitor of the third judicial circuit from 1908 to 1917, when he resigned. He served as chairman of the Democratic county committee and member of the Democratic State committee 1908–1918.

With the outbreak of World War One, he was commissioned as a major in the Judge Advocate General's Department of the United States Army in 1917. He was promoted to the rank of lieutenant colonel in 1918 and served throughout the war.

Stoll was elected as a Democrat to the Sixty-sixth Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of J. Willard Ragsdale. He was reelected to the Sixty-seventh Congress and served from October 7, 1919, to March 3, 1923. He was an unsuccessful candidate for renomination in 1922. After serving in Congress, he resumed the practice of law. He was again a member of the State house of representatives from 1929 to 1931.
