Glenard Paul (Glen) Lipscomb (August 19, 1915 – February 1, 1970) was a United States Congressman from the state of California.

Born in Jackson County, Michigan, Lipscomb moved to California with his parents in 1920, where the family settled in Los Angeles. He was educated in the Los Angeles public schools, including Belmont High School (Los Angeles, California). After attending the University of Southern California and Woodbury College (now in Burbank), he became an accountant.

He served in the Army's Financial Corps during World War II and in 1947 was elected to the California State Assembly 56th district, where he served until 1953. That year he won a special election to the U.S. House to replace Norris Poulson, representing California's twenty-fourth district. Lipscomb voted in favor of the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1960,[1][2] as well as the 24th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the Voting Rights Act of 1965,[3][4] but voted against the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1968.[5][6]

Lipscomb continued to serve in the House for the remainder of his life. He died of cancer at Bethesda Naval Hospital at the age of 54 on February 1, 1970[7] and is interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery, Hollywood Hills. The submarine USS Glenard P. Lipscomb was named after him.[8]

Lipscomb was married to Virginia Sognalian Lipscomb, a classmate at Belmont.

For a short time a BSA camp near Big Bear Lake was named after him: Camp Lipscomb.
