George Philip Krapp (born Cincinnati 1872, died 1934) was a scholar of English.
In 1897 Krapp joined the faculty of Columbia University, becoming professor of English at Cincinnati (1908–10) before gaining the same title at Columbia (1910–34). His most famous achievement is conceiving and in large part undertaking the Anglo-Saxon Poetic Records edition (begun in 1931, and concluded by Krapp's collaborator Elliott Van Kirk Dobbie in 1953). Krapp is also noted for his books Modern English: Its Growth and Present Use (1909) and The English Language in America (1925).
