Paul Doughty Bartlett (August 14, 1907 – October 11, 1997) was an American chemist.

Bartlett was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and grew up in Indianapolis. He received his B.A. from Amherst College in 1928. After his graduation from Harvard with James Bryant Conant, Bartlett worked at the Rockefeller Institute and the University of Minnesota. Most of his career was spent at Harvard. Among other achievements, Bartlett was co-author with Lawrence H. Knox of a classic paper on organic reaction mechanisms.[1][2][3] After his retirement in 1972, he started his second career at Texas Christian University.

He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1946.[4] He was awarded the Willard Gibbs Award in 1963,[5] National Medal of Science in 1968,[6] and the John Price Wetherill Medal in 1970.
