Stanley Raymond Dennison (15 June 1912 - 22 November 1992) was a British economics professor probably best known for having been Vice-Chancellor and Honorary Professor at the University of Hull in the 1970s. He was a member of the Mont Pelerin Society and was present at its inaugural meeting in 1947. He was also one of the original trustees of the Wincott Foundation, a neoliberal trust set up by Ralph Harris of the Institute of Economic Affairs.

According to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography:

“He was always willing to welcome and support visiting scholars who espoused beliefs similar to his own. For example, in Milton Friedman's Memoirs, Dennison appears repeatedly not only as ‘a first-rate economist’, but also as someone who had warmly but unobtrusively supported Friedman on his early visits to Britain. The Institute of Economic Affairs was one of the most influential think-tanks in twentieth-century Britain, paving the way in its publications and other activities for what came to be seen as the Thatcherite era. For many years, as a member of its council, Dennison played an important role in shaping the institute's work. He was an active early participant in the Mont Pelerin Society, an international group of considerable standing inspired by the work of Hayek.”
