Henry Hamilton Bailey (1894-1961) was an English surgeon.
- Born on October 1, 1894 at Bishopstoke, Hampshire son of Dr Henry James Bailey MB, MS (Edin)
- Died 1961
In 1958, Sir Hamilton Bailey was preparing a new edition of his Short Practice of Surgery. As he later reported in letters to the Lancet and the British Medical Journal, he did not detect the falsity of the Coudé biography until his text was in page proof. Consequently several pages of the new edition had to be reset and biographical references to Coudé deleted.
