Wallace Charles Winter, Sr. (August 8, 1872 – May 10, 1947) was an All-American football player. He played tackle for Yale University from 1890–1892 and was selected to the 1891 College Football All-America Team.
After graduating from Yale, Winter became a competitive golfer.
Winters's son, Wallace C. Winter, Jr., was also a back for the Yale football team, but quit the team to serve as an aviator in France during World War I. The younger Winter was killed in action in March 1918 while flying behind enemy lines in Germany. Winter had earlier been reported missing, but survived that episode to receive the Croix de Guerre in Feb 1917.
