Charles Sears Baldwin (21 March 1867 – 23 October 1935) was an American scholar and professor of rhetoric at Yale University.


Born in New York City in 1867, Baldwin entered Columbia College at seventeen and received his A.B. in 1888. He was one of the earliest students to be granted the Ph.D. degree in English at Columbia. Besides teaching at Yale (1895–1911), Baldwin also worked at Barnard College and Columbia University. He was married twice, first in 1894 to Agnes Irwin (who died in 1897), and then to Gratia Eaton Whited in 1902. Most of his life an Episcopalian, he converted to Catholicism the year before his death. Professor Baldwin died in New York City in 1935.
