Larry Edward Tise is an American historian whose life has taken him into many realms of history—scholarly, private, public, academic, administrative, entrepreneurial, and into frequent campaigns for history causes.

In addition to executive and academic appointments, he has worked as a private practice historian since 1990. He also established and heads the world's principal organization on prestigious awards internationally. Since 2000 he has served as a distinguished university history professor.
