Portrait by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll).

Reginald Southey (15 September 1835 - 8 November 1899) was an English physician.

Southey was a nephew of Romantic poet Robert Southey, and the fifth son of medical doctor Henry Herbert Southey.

A graduate of Christ Church, Oxford, he studied medicine at St Bartholomew's Hospital before travelling the world. He went on to serve as a member of the Lunacy Commission from 1883 until 1898.

He is notable for having been the life-long friend of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson ('Lewis Carroll'). Southey greatly encouraged Dodgson to take up photography, which Dodgson then pursued for 24 years.
