Henry White Cannon (September 27, 1850 – April 27, 1934) was a United States Comptroller of the Currency from 1884 to 1886. He was born in Delhi, New York.

Cannon, a Minnesota banker, was named Comptroller by President Chester A. Arthur. After only a few months in office, he was confronted by the financial panic of 1884.

A nationwide crisis was averted because the New York Clearing House Association quickly extended credit to threatened banks. After Grover Cleveland was elected president, Cannon resigned and joined the national bank where former Comptroller John Jay Knox served as president. Cannon was later elected president of the Chase National Bank of New York. He became chairman of the board in 1904, and was succeeded as president by A. Barton Hepburn, another former Comptroller of the Currency. He died in 1934 in Daytona Beach, Florida.
