Milton Cline Garber (November 30, 1867 - September 12, 1948) was a U.S. Representative from Oklahoma.

Born in Humboldt, California, Garber was reared on a farm in Iowa. He attended the common schools, Upper Iowa University at Fayette 1887-1890, and the law department of the University of Iowa at Iowa City 1891-1893. He settled in Oklahoma upon the opening of the Cherokee Strip. He was admitted to the bar in 1893 and commenced the practice of law in Guthrie, Oklahoma. In company with his father and brother founded the town of Garber in 1893 and opened up the Garber oil fields. He was appointed probate judge of Garfield County in 1902 and subsequently elected in 1904. He was appointed associate justice of the supreme court of the Territory of Oklahoma and trial judge of the fifth judicial district in 1906, serving in these capacities until Oklahoma became a State.

Garber was elected judge of the twentieth judicial district in 1908 and served until 1912, when he resigned. He resumed the practice of law. He served as mayor of Enid, Oklahoma from 1919 to 1921. He engaged in the newspaper business and in agricultural pursuits.
