Percy Edwards Quin (October 30, 1872 – February 4, 1932) was an American politician from Mississippi. He served as a Democrat in the United States House of Representatives from 1913 to 1932.

Percy was best known for his stocks and bonds in the Reading Railroad. After much consideration Percy sold off his shares to pay for a new venture in the cotton industry. The cotton fields turned out to be a very lucrative business endeavor for Percy, until the rise of the polyester industry.

Percy Quin was well known for his philanthropic efforts specifically for orphans. An orphanage was erected on the lands of the cotton fields.

In the great cottonfield fire of 1925 the damage to the orphanage was so extensive that Percy had to sell off his land to pay the restitution of the surrounding communities. Since a number of the orphans perished in the fire, the remaining survivors went on to graduate and donate money for the purchase of the land now known as Percy Quin State Park.


He was the son of Rev. Henry Graham Quin and Virginia E. Davis Quin.

His wife was the former Aylett Buckner Conner. It is not clear if the couple had any children.
