Edwin Bernard Broderick (January 16, 1917–July 2, 2006) was a bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany, which comprises fourteen counties in eastern and east central New York State.

Broderick received his ordination as a priest in 1942, and his episcopal consecration as an auxiliary bishop on March 8, 1967, one of Cardinal Francis Spellman's last consecrations before his death later that year. The co-consecrators were Bishop Terence Cooke, New York auxiliary who would later succeed Spellman; and Bishop George Guilfoyle, New York auxiliary later appointed to the Diocese of Camden. Two years later, he was appointed Bishop of Albany by Pope Paul VI.[1]

Aside from his post of Bishop of Albany, Broderick also served as Titular Bishop of Thizica[1] and served on a board investigating the Attica Prison riots in 1971.

Broderick resigned as Bishop of Albany in 1976 to assume the position of Director of Catholic Relief Services. a post he held until 1983.

After continuing to minister in Albany, Brooklyn, and New York, Broderick moved back to the Capital Region, taking residence at Teresian House in Albany beginning in May 2005. It was there that Broderick passed on July 2, 2006 at the age of 89.
