Henry Thomas Schnittkind (pseudonym Henry Thomas; 18 August 1888 Russia – 25 December 1970 Bridgeport, Connecticut) was an American author and translator.
Schnittkind was born in Meretz, Russian Empire (now Vilnius, Lithuania) in 1888. He immigrated to New York just prior to his 10th birthday. Schnittkind earned three degrees from Harvard: a Bachelor of Arts in 1909, a Master of Arts in 1910, and a PhD in 1913. He was an organizer in 1915 of the Boston-based Stratford Publishing Company, and served as President from inception until 1930. Schnittkind also was an editor of The Stratford Journal. The Stratford Publishing Company merged with the American Bookbinding Company and was renamed American Book-Stratford Press, Inc., based in New York City, headed by Louis Satenstein (1874–1947).
