George Park Fisher (August 10, 1827 – December 20, 1909) was an American theologian and historian who was noted as a teacher and a prolific writer.

He was born in Wrentham, Massachusetts. He graduated from Brown University in 1847, and then studied theology at Yale Divinity School and the Andover Theological Seminary. He graduated from the latter institution in 1851. In 1853 he visited Germany, where he continued his theological studies.[1]

Upon returning from Europe in 1854, he was appointed professor of divinity at Yale, and he was ordained as pastor of the College church.[1] In 1861, he resigned these positions to become a professor of ecclesiastical history. In 1901, he became emeritus professor. Fisher was elected a member of the American Antiquarian Society in 1879.[2] He was president of the American Historical Association in 1898.
