Sir Henry Thomas Tizard (23 August 1885 – 9 October 1959) was an English chemist and inventor and past Rector of Imperial College.

After the war Tizard served as chairman of the Defence Research Policy Committee and president of the British Association. One of the most controversial meetings he had to attend in his capacity as chair of the Defence Research Policy Committee would only emerge many years later with the declassification of CIA documents, namely a meeting on June 1, 1951, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Montreal, Canada, between of Tizard, Omond Solandt (chairman of Canada's Defense Research Board) and representatives of the CIA, to discuss "brainwashing."[1]
