Edwin Eugene Howell (March 12, 1845 - April 16, 1911) was an American geologist and cartographer known for his high-quality raised relief maps. Born in New York, he attended the University of Rochester, where he studied with the geologist Henry A. Ward. Afterwards, he joined early surveys in the American West led by George Montague Wheeler and John Wesley Powell, two of the 'Four Great Surveys' that were joined to form the U.S. Geological Survey. Afterwards, he devoted his efforts to producing maps, including the aforementioned raised-relief maps, and also helped to found the Geological Society of America.
