Roy G. Finch (August 17, 1884 - March 4, 1959 Albany, New York) was an American civil engineer and politician from New York. He was the last New York State Engineer and Surveyor, in office from 1925 to 1926.


He was the son of George Nelson Finch and Helen (Hunt) Finch.

He was State Engineer and Surveyor from 1925 to 1926, elected on the Republican ticket in 1924. In 1925, he published The Story of the New York State Canals: Historical and Commercial Information.

In 1926, Democratic Governor Al Smith undertook a major re-organisation of the State administration and the Engineer and Surveyor's Department was abolished, and the competences transferred to the New York State Department of Public Works.
