Ofelia Hooper Polo (Las Minas, Panama, 13 November 1900 - 23 September 1981) was a Panamanian sociologist, poet, professor, researcher, and civil rights activist.[1][2]

She was the daughter of Maurice Hooper and Olimpia Polo Valdés.[1] She worked at several print media in Panama, including La Antena (1931) and the Frontera (1937); she also edited Primicias in 1927.[1] Together with Eda Nela, she was one of the first proponents of the avant-garde in Panamanian poetry.[3]

She was one of the pioneers of the field of sociology in Panama, together with Demetrio Porras (1898-1972) and Georgina Jiménez de López (1904-1994).[4][5] She was also a pioneering researcher of Panamanian agriculture.[1]
