Edward Tuck, around 1910

Edward Tuck (August 24, 1842 – April 30, 1938) was an American banker and philanthropist. Born in Exeter, New Hampshire, he was educated at Dartmouth College. Tuck donated $500,000 to Dartmouth to endow the Amos Tuck School of Administration and Finance, in memory of his father. His gifts to Dartmouth were estimated at $6 million.

He donated funds to the New Hampshire Historical Society to build its New Hampshire History Building housing the Tuck Library.

Tuck became a member of the banking firm Munroe & Co. in 1871. From 1890, he lived in France, first as a diplomat, then as an expatriate, where he donated an art collection valued at $5 million, and funds for hospitals and other institutions.

Tuck died at Monte Carlo, Monaco.

Other members of the Tuck family include Edward Hallam Tuck (1927-2001) who was awarded the prestigious Legion of Honor, and was President of the French American Foundation, the actress Jessica Tuck, and the renowned fecal expert Hallam Tuck.
