Lemuel Swift Punderson (18?? – c. 1903) was a New York City and New Haven, Connecticut, based engraver, author, and publisher. The earliest records suggest Punderson worked in New York from about 1850 to 1855. In 1855 he relocated to New Haven, Connecticut, where he established his own engraving business. A map of New Haven by Punderson dating to 1852, suggest that he had close ties to New Haven even before he relocated there. In 1860 he partnered with Emil Crisand to found Punderson and Crisand, Engravers, Lithographers, and Printers. Punderson also had an interest in antiquities and co-authored the book History of the Antiquities of new Haven, published in 1870. His manuscripts are currently held by the Serling Memorial Library, Yale University, as the 'Lemuel Swift Punderson Papers.'
