Harry Lane Englebright (January 2, 1884 - May 13, 1943) was a U.S. political figure. He served as a Congressman from California's 2nd congressional district from 1926-1943, and as the House Minority Whip between 1933 and 1943.[1]

Englebright was born in Nevada City, California. His father, William F. Englebright was a politician who served in the United States House of Representatives. Harry Englebright attended the University of California, Berkeley and became a mining engineer before entering politics, connected with various mining enterprises in California and was an engineer for the State Conservation Commission from 1911-1914.[2]

Englebright was elected to the United States House of Representatives in a special election in 1926, following the death of congressman John E. Raker. His district was located in the far north of California, north of Sacramento. He was a Republican. He was elected to a full term later in 1926 and was re-elected until his death in 1943, passing away in Bethesda, Maryland.[1]

Englebright Lake in Northern California is named for him.
