Eliphalet Pearson (June 11, 1752 – September 12, 1826) was an American educator, the first Preceptor of Phillips Academy (1778–86), and the acting president of Harvard University (1804–06). He also co-founded the American Education Society.[1][nb 1]

Pearson graduated from Harvard in 1773, where he was a member of the Hasty Pudding, after having attended Dummer Charity School (now known as The Governor's Academy). He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1781.[2]

After the death of Joseph Willard in 1804, Pearson became the interim president of Harvard University. He resigned that post in 1806, when Samuel Webber became president.
