Joseph Chamberlain (8 July 1836 – 2 July 1914) was an influential British businessman, politician, and statesman.

During his early adulthood Chamberlain was a radically-minded Liberal Party member, a campaigner for educational reform, and President of the Board of Trade. He later became a Liberal Unionist in alliance with the Conservative Party and was appointed Secretary of State for the Colonies. Near the end of his career he directed the tariff reform campaign. Despite never becoming Prime Minister, he is regarded as one of the most important British politicians of the late 19th century and early 20th century, as well as an interesting character and renowned orator.

Chamberlain was the father of Sir Austen Chamberlain and Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain.
