Said Kamel Sabbagh (1899 - 1967) (سعيد كامل الصباغ) was a Palestinian-Lebanese geographer known for publishing textbooks on the geography of the Arab world. He was born in Haifa and as a child moved to Sidon and then to Beirut. Initially schooled in commerce, he instead turned to teaching and education administration, work which brought him back to Haifa and then to Safed. During this time, he began to publish geographical works, for both a scholarly and general audience. Over his career, he authored or co-authored 14 books and late in life oversaw the production of a large wall map of Palestine on the eve of the First Arab-Israeli War which became a standard reference work for the Palestine Liberation Organization.
