Clive Harcourt Carruthers (c. 1891–1980) was a Canadian classicist.

Carruthers attended Corpus Christi College, Oxford, as a Rhodes Scholar graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1916.[1] He served in the Canadian Army, briefly taught at the University of Alberta, and, in 1921, started teaching at McGill University in Montreal.[1] From 1929–1950 he served as professor of classical philology; in 1950 he became department chairman; and from 1950–1961 he was Hiram Mills professor of classics.[1]

Following his 1961 retirement Carruthers published scholarly papers about Hittite etymology as well as Latin translations of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll.[1][2][3]
