Stanis?aw Mendelson (1858 - 25 July 1913) was a Polish socialist politician and publicist of Jewish descent. He was an activist of Polish and international workers' movement.

He was one of the main activists and creators of the first programme of the Polish Socialist Party. In 1875-1878 he helped organize socialist groups in Warsaw. In 1878 Mendelson emigrated to Switzerland, and later lived in France and the United Kingdom. He was the co-founder and editor of the first Polish socialist magazines - Równo, Przed?wit and Walka Klas.[1]

In 1880 he was accused, together with other activists, in a judicial process with socialists in Kraków.
