Warren Brewster Hooker (November 24, 1856 – March 5, 1920) was a U.S. Representative from New York.

Born in Perrysburg, New York, Hooker attended the public schools and Forestville Free Academy, Forestville, New York. He studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1879 and commenced practice in Forestville. He served as Special Surrogate of Chautauqua County from 1878 to 1881.

He moved to Tacoma, Washington, and practiced there from 1882 to 1884. He returned to Fredonia, Pomfret Township, New York, and resumed his profession from 1884 to 1898. He was the Supervisor of the town of Pomfret in 1889 and 1890.

Hooker was elected as a Republican to the Fifty-second and to the four succeeding Congresses and served from March 4, 1891, until his resignation on November 10, 1898, before the close of the Fifty-fifth Congress, having been appointed a Justice of the Supreme Court of New York on that date. He served as chairman of the Committee on Rivers and Harbors (Fifty-fourth and Fifty-fifth Congresses), where he was elected to that office in 1899 and stayed until 1913.

He served as member of the Appellate Division from 1902 to 1909. In 1905, Hooker was the subject of an "impeachment trial" by the 128th New York State Legislature but was acquitted. He resumed the practice of law in Fredonia, New York, in 1914.
