Clyde Roark Hoey (11 December 1877 – 12 May 1954) was the Democratic governor of the U.S. state of North Carolina from 1937 to 1941. He was elected to the United States House of Representatives to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Edwin Y. Webb and served from 1919 to 1921. Hoey later served as a Democratic U.S. Senator from 1945 until his death in 1954.

Hoey Auditorium on the campus of Western Carolina University is named after him, as is Hoey Hall, a dormitory at Appalachian State University.
