William Butts Mershon (January 16, 1856 – July 12, 1943) was an American author and businessman. For two years he was a state forester and he was an associate life member of the American Ornithologists' Union and here his interests enabled him to gather together the material from a number of sources to publish a volume on the passenger pigeon in 1907. The book on the passenger pigeon was published several years after the last of this once endemic bird was last killed (in 1900) and before the last died in captivity in an American zoo. The book contains contributions by a number of writers.
