Frederic Gregory Mather (11 August 1844, in Cleveland, Ohio – 30 August 1925, in Stamford, Connecticut) was a United States journalist.



He was the son of banker Samuel Holmes Mather (1813–1894) and Emily Worthington Gregory (1815–1900). He attended Cleveland High School, and graduated from Dartmouth College in 1867. For a time he worked and studied law in Cleveland, but did not practice, instead choosing scientific and literary pursuits. In 1874 he became managing editor of the Times at Binghamton, New York, and in 1875 editor-in-chief of the Republican in the same city, but resigned the place in 1879. He wrote editorials for the Albany Evening Journal in 1880, and then became the resident Albany correspondent of several newspapers. He frequently contributed articles to periodicals, chiefly on historical, economic, and scientific subjects.


In 1871, he married Cornelia Heyer Olcutt (c.1847-1874). They had one daughter. He later married Alice Evelyn Yeager (b. 1853) in 1880.
