George Hyde Fallon (July 24, 1902 - March 21, 1980), a Democrat, was a U.S. Congressman who represented the 4th congressional district of Maryland from January 3, 1945, to January 3, 1971.

Growing up, Fallon attended public schools, Calvert Business College, and Johns Hopkins University. He engaged in the advertising sign business and made his entry into politics by becoming chairman of the Democratic state central committee of Baltimore, Maryland, in 1938. He was elected to the Baltimore City Council, where he served from 1939 to 1944, at which point he won election as a Democrat to the Seventy-ninth the twelve succeeding congresses, serving from January 3, 1945, to January 3, 1971. While in congress, Fallon was chairman of the Committee on Public Works from the 89th through 91st Congresses. Fallon was also one of the congressmen wounded during the Capitol shooting incident in 1954.

Fallon was an unsuccessful candidate for renomination in 1970 to the Ninety-second Congress after being labeled by conservationists as one the dirty dozen for his record as the twelfth most anti-environmental congressman at that time. Fallon retired to Baltimore, where he died in 1980. He is interred in Greenmount Cemetery.
