John Randal Baker (23 October 1900 – 8 June 1984) was an English biologist, zoologist, microscopist, anatomist, and anthropologist, and a professor at the University of Oxford, where he was Emeritus Reader in Cytology (Cell biology). In 1958, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society.

The most known of his works is the 1974 Race, published by Oxford University Press, which used races and research from traditional physical anthropology, and consequently is considered politically incorrect today. Leftist Wikipedia makes various dubious claims in association with this.
