Thomas Andrew Murray Kirk (17 January 1906 – 10 August 1966) was a Liberal party member of the Canadian House of Commons. Born in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, he was an administrator and teacher by career.

He was first elected at the Digby—Yarmouth riding in the 1949 general election after local Liberal party members chose him as their candidate.[1] After a redistribution of electoral districts, Kirk was re-elected for successive terms at Shelburne—Yarmouth—Clare in 1953 and 1957. He was defeated in the 1958 election by Felton Legere of the Liberal party.

In 1952 Kirk was a Canadian delegate to the Seventh General Conference of UNESCO in Paris.[2]
