Henry Coppée (October 13, 1821 – March 22, 1895) was an American educator and author. He was born in Savannah, Georgia. He studied at Yale University for two years, worked as a civil engineer, and finally graduated from the West Point in 1845. He served in the Mexican–American War as a lieutenant and was brevetted captain for gallantry at the battles of Contreras and Churubusco. During the American Civil War, he edited the United States Service Magazine.

Coppée was Assistant Professor of French at West Point from 1848 to 1849, and then Principal Assistant Professor of Geography, History, and Ethics from 1850 to 1855. After resigning from the army, he was the Professor of English literature and History at the University of Pennsylvania from 1855 to 1866. He was selected by Asa Packer as the first president of Lehigh University, an office he filled from 1866 to 1875.

Coppee died in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on March 22, 1895.
