Anthony Francis Clarke Wallace (born 1923) is a Canadian-American anthropologist who specializes in Native American cultures, especially the Iroquois. His research expresses an interest in the intersection of cultural anthropology and psychology. He is famous for the theory of revitalization movements.

He was born in Toronto, Ontario, in 1923, the son of the historian Paul Wallace, and did both undergraduate and graduate work at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was a student of A. Irving Hallowell and Frank Speck. He received his Ph.D. in 1950. He later taught at the University of Pennsylvania, where his students included the anthropologist Raymond D. Fogelson.
