Henry Morgenthau, Jr. (1891 – 1967) was the United States of America's Jewish Secretary of the Treasury during the Presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Morgenthau was involved in the Vrba-Wetzler report on the Holocaust and drew up the harsh Morgenthau Plan for post-war Germany. See the articles on these topics.

An influential associate of Morgenthau was the Jewish Treasury official Harry Dexter White (original surname Weit), a major Communist infiltrator, accused of having caused large-scale harm on a wide range of issues.

After the war, Morgenthau devoted the remainder of his life to working with Jewish philanthropies and also became a financial advisor to Israel.
